    Debian Bug     : 970040
    
    A potential Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability was found in rails,
    a ruby based MVC framework. Views that allow the user to control the
    default (not found) value of the `t` and `translate` helpers could be
    susceptible to XSS attacks. When an HTML-unsafe string is passed as the
    default for a missing translation key named html or ending in _html, the
    default string is incorrectly marked as HTML-safe and not escaped.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
    2:4.2.7.1-1+deb9u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
