    CVE-2007-5162
    
        It was discovered that the Ruby HTTP(S) module performs insufficient
        validation of SSL certificates, which may lead to man-in-the-middle
        attacks.
    
    CVE-2007-5770
    
        It was discovered that the Ruby modules for FTP, Telnet, IMAP, POP
        and SMTP perform insufficient validation of SSL certificates, which
        may lead to man-in-the-middle attacks.
    
    The stable distribution (etch) no longer contains libopenssl-ruby.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed
    in version 0.1.4a-1sarge1. Packages for sparc will be provided later.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libopenssl-ruby packages.
