    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-0155
    
    An interpretation conflict can cause the Active Record component of
    Rails, a web framework for the Ruby programming language, to truncate
    queries in unexpected ways.  This may allow attackers to elevate their
    privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
