1. Summary:

 

Updated rubygem-actionpack and ruby193-rubygem-actionpack packages that

fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise

1.1.3.

 

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:

3. Description:

 

Ruby on Rails is a model–view–controller (MVC) framework for web

application development. Action Pack implements the controller and the view

components.

 

Two cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in rubygem-actionpack and

ruby193-rubygem-actionpack. A remote attacker could use these flaws to

conduct XSS attacks against users of an application using

rubygem-actionpack or ruby193-rubygem-actionpack. (CVE-2013-1855,

CVE-2013-1857)

 

Red Hat would like to thank Ruby on Rails upstream for reporting these

issues. Upstream acknowledges Charlie Somerville as the original reporter

of CVE-2013-1855, and Alan Jenkins as the original reporter of

CVE-2013-1857.

 

Users of Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise 1.1.3 are advised to upgrade to these

updated packages, which correct these issues.
