    Peter McLarnan discovered that the internationalization component of
    Ruby on Rails does not properly encode parameters in generated HTML
    code, resulting in a cross-site scripting vulnerability.  This update
    corrects the underlying vulnerability in the i18n gem, as provided by
    the ruby-i18n package.
    
    The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected by this problem;
    the libi18n-ruby package does not contain the vulnerable code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.0-3+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.9-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-i18n packages.
