    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Ruby on Rails, a web
    application framework.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-3086
            The cookie store may be vulnerability to a timing attack,
    	potentially allowing remote attackers to forge message
    	digests.
    
    CVE-2009-4214
    	A cross-site scripting vulnerability in the strip_tags
    	function allows remote user-assisted attackers to inject
    	arbitrary web script.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2.1.0-7+lenny0.2.
    
    For the other distributions, these problems have been fixed in version
    2.2.3-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
