    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Rails, the Ruby web
    application framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2011-0446
        
        Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities when JavaScript
        encoding is used, allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web
        script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2011-0447
    
        Rails does not properly validate HTTP requests that contain an
        X-Requested-With header, which makes it easier for remote attackers
        to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.0-7+lenny0.1.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze0.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.11-0.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
