    It was discovered that Rails, the Ruby web application development
    framework, performed insufficient validation on input parameters,
    allowing unintended type conversions. An attacker may use this to
    bypass authentication systems, inject arbitrary SQL, inject and
    execute arbitrary code, or perform a DoS attack on the application.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze4.1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid),
    this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
