    3. Description:
    
    Ruby on Rails is a model-view-controller (MVC) framework for web
    application development. Active Record implements object-relational mapping
    for accessing database entries using objects.
    
    It was discovered that Active Record did not properly quote values of the
    range type attributes when using the PostgreSQL database adapter. A remote
    attacker could possibly use this flaw to conduct an SQL injection attack
    against applications using Active Record. (CVE-2014-3483)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank the Ruby on Rails project for reporting this
    issue. Upstream acknowledges Sean Griffin of thoughtbot as the original
    reporter.
    
    All ror40-rubygem-activerecord users are advised to upgrade to these
    updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
