Date: May 17, 2014
A vulnerability in Ruby OpenID may lead to Denial of Service.
Ruby OpenID is a robust library for verifying and serving OpenID
Vulnerable: < 2.2.2
Unaffected: >= 2.2.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
An XML entity parsing error has been discovered in Ruby OpenID.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted XML file, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.

All Ruby OpenID users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-ruby/ruby-openid-2.2.2"
