Debian Security Advisory
DLA-2380-1 ruby-gon -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 26 Sep 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-25739.
- More information:
An issue was discovered in the gon gem before gon-6.4.0 for Ruby. MultiJson does not honor the escape_mode parameter to escape fields as an XSS protection mechanism. To mitigate, json_dumper.rb in gon now does escaping for XSS by default without relying on MultiJson.
For Debian 9
Stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 6.1.0-1+deb9u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-gon packages.
