Multiple vulnerabilities were found in RubyGems, the worst of which
allows execution of arbitrary code.
RubyGems is a sophisticated package manager for Ruby.
Vulnerable: < 2.6.13
Unaffected: >= 2.6.13
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in RubyGems. Please review
the referenced CVE identifiers for details.
A remote attacker, by enticing a user to install a specially crafted
gem, could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All RubyGems users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-ruby/rubygems-2.6.13"
