Debian: Security update for Ruby on Rails

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Ruby on Rails, a Ruby framework for web application development. The blacklist provided by the attr_protected method could be bypassed with crafted requests, having an application-specific impact. In some applications, the +serialize+ helper in ActiveRecord could be tricked into deserializing arbitrary YAML data, possibly leading to remote code execution.

Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Ruby on Rails, a Ruby framework
for web application development.

CVE-2013-0276
  The blacklist provided by the attr_protected method could be
  bypassed with crafted requests, having an application-specific
  impact.

CVE-2013-0277
  In some applications, the +serialize+ helper in ActiveRecord
  could be tricked into deserializing arbitrary YAML data,
  possibly leading to remote code execution.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
in version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze7.

We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
