    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the interpreter for the
    Ruby language, which may result in incorrect processing of HTTP/FTP,
    directory traversal, command injection, unintended socket creation or
    information disclosure.
    
    This update also fixes several issues in RubyGems which could allow an
    attacker to use specially crafted gem files to mount cross-site scripting
    attacks, cause denial of service through an infinite loop, write arbitrary
    files, or run malicious code.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.3.3-1+deb9u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby2.3 packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of ruby2.3 please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
