    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Rails, the Ruby web
    application framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-4214
    
        A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability had been found in the
        strip_tags function. An attacker may inject non-printable characters
        that certain browsers will then evaluate. This vulnerability only
        affects the oldstable distribution (lenny).
    
    CVE-2011-2930
    
        A SQL injection vulnerability had been found in the quote_table_name
        method could allow malicious users to inject arbitrary SQL into a
        query.
    
    CVE-2011-2931
    
        A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability had been found in the
        strip_tags  helper. An parsing error can be exploited by an attacker,
        who can confuse the parser and may inject HTML tags into the output
        document.
    
    CVE-2011-3186
    
        A newline (CRLF) injection vulnerability had been found in
        response.rb. This vulnerability allows an attacker to inject arbitrary
        HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via the
        Content-Type header.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.0-7+lenny1.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.14.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
