Issue date: 2013-04-02

CVE Names: CVE-2013-1854

=====================================================================

 

1. Summary:

 

Updated ruby193-rubygem-activerecord packages that fix one security issue

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. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,

which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in

the References section.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise Infrastructure - noarch

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.

 

A flaw was found in the way hashes were handled in certain queries. A

remote attacker could use this flaw to perform a denial of service

(resource consumption) attack by sending specially-crafted queries that

would result in the creation of Ruby symbols, which were never garbage

collected. (CVE-2013-1854)

 

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

issue. Upstream acknowledges Ben Murphy as the original reporter.

 

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

updated packages, which correct this issue.
