    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Ruby on Rails, a Ruby framework
    for web application development.
    
    CVE-2013-0276
    	The blacklist provided by the attr_protected method could be
    	bypassed with crafted requests, having an application-specific
    	impact.
    
    CVE-2013-0277
    	In some applications, the +serialize+ helper in ActiveRecord
    	could be tricked into deserializing arbitrary YAML data,
    	possibly leading to remote code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
