Package        : ruby-kramdown
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-14001
Debian Bug     : 965305

A flaw was discovered in ruby-kramdown, a fast, pure ruby, Markdown
parser and converter, which could result in unintended read access to
files or unintended embedded Ruby code execution when the {::options /}
extension is used together with the 'template' option.

The Update introduces a new option 'forbidden_inline_options' to
restrict the options allowed with the {::options /} extension. By
default the 'template' option is forbidden.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.17.0-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-kramdown packages.
