Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 678512, Bug 696015.
More information:

EventMachine, a Ruby network engine could be crashed by opening a high number of parallel connections (>= 1024) towards a server using the EventMachine engine. The crash happens due to the file descriptors overwriting the stack.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.12.10-3+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-eventmachine packages.
