    In haml, when using user input to perform tasks on the server, characters
    like < > " ' must be escaped properly. In this case, the ' character was
    missed. An attacker can manipulate the input to introduce additional
    attributes, potentially executing code.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    4.0.5-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-haml packages.
