    Package        : ruby-sprockets
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-3760
    Debian Bug     : 901913
    
    Orange Tsai discovered a path traversal flaw in ruby-sprockets, a
    Rack-based asset packaging system. A remote attacker can take advantage
    of this flaw to read arbitrary files outside an application's root
    directory via specially crafted requests, when the Sprockets server is
    used in production.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.7.0-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-sprockets packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of ruby-sprockets please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
