====================================================================                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: ruby security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2011:0909-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011:0909.html
Issue date:        2011-06-28
CVE Names:         CVE-2009-4492 CVE-2010-0541 CVE-2011-0188

====================================================================
1. Summary:

Updated ruby packages that fix multiple security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

Ruby is an extensible, interpreted, object-oriented, scripting language. It
has features to process text files and to do system management tasks.

A flaw was found in the way large amounts of memory were allocated on
64-bit systems when using the BigDecimal class. A context-dependent
attacker could use this flaw to cause memory corruption, causing a Ruby
application that uses the BigDecimal class to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code. This issue did not affect 32-bit systems. (CVE-2011-0188)

A race condition flaw was found in the remove system entries method in the
FileUtils module. If a local user ran a Ruby script that uses this method,
a local attacker could use this flaw to delete arbitrary files and
directories accessible to that user via a symbolic link attack.
(CVE-2011-1004)

It was found that WEBrick (the Ruby HTTP server toolkit) did not filter
terminal escape sequences from its log files. A remote attacker could use
specially-crafted HTTP requests to inject terminal escape sequences into
the WEBrick log files. If a victim viewed the log files with a terminal
emulator, it could result in control characters being executed with the
privileges of that user. (CVE-2009-4492)

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way WEBrick displayed
error pages. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform a cross-site
scripting attack against victims by tricking them into visiting a
specially-crafted URL. (CVE-2010-0541)

A flaw was found in the method for translating an exception message into a
string in the Exception class. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
bypass safe level 4 restrictions, allowing untrusted (tainted) code to
modify arbitrary, trusted (untainted) strings, which safe level 4
restrictions would otherwise prevent. (CVE-2011-1005)

Red Hat would like to thank Drew Yao of Apple Product Security for
reporting the CVE-2011-0188 and CVE-2010-0541 issues.

All Ruby users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:
