_______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:201 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : ruby Date : July 26, 2013 Affected: Business Server 1.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in ruby: A flaw was found in Ruby's SSL client's hostname identity check when handling certificates that contain hostnames with NULL bytes. An attacker could potentially exploit this flaw to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks to spoof SSL servers. Note that to exploit this issue, an attacker would need to obtain a carefully-crafted certificate signed by an authority that the client trusts (CVE-2013-4073). The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-4073 http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=979251 _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 1/X86_64: 058283c98b01a2fdba4f472fdfcba5cf mbs1/x86_64/ruby-1.8.7.p358-2.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 59f0c4870555c0d62bb9075289e78932 mbs1/x86_64/ruby-devel-1.8.7.p358-2.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm a332f7937de158d24ffbe1fbb73fa1b3 mbs1/x86_64/ruby-doc-1.8.7.p358-2.2.mbs1.noarch.rpm 1dd591b903a7d79b0795e687fab8ff31 mbs1/x86_64/ruby-tk-1.8.7.p358-2.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm aa8a688288b3170c1d91ef1f014d9b67 mbs1/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.7.p358-2.2.mbs1.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
