Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Ruby: Denial of Service (GLSA 200605-11)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 10, 2006
Bug(s): #130657
ID: 200605-11

Synopsis


Ruby WEBrick and XMLRPC servers are vulnerable to Denial of Service.


Background


Ruby is an interpreted scripting language for quick and easy
object-oriented programming. It comes bundled with HTTP ("WEBrick") and
XMLRPC server objects.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-lang/ruby
Vulnerable: < 1.8.4-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.8.4-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Ruby uses blocking sockets for WEBrick and XMLRPC servers.


Impact


An attacker could send large amounts of data to an affected server
to block the socket and thus deny other connections to the server.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Ruby users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/ruby-1.8.4-r1"


References
