<background>
<p>
Ruby is an interpreted scripting language for quick and easy
object-oriented programming. It comes bundled with HTTP ("WEBrick") and
XMLRPC server objects.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
Ruby uses blocking sockets for WEBrick and XMLRPC servers.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could send large amounts of data to an affected server
to block the socket and thus deny other connections to the server.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Ruby users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-lang/ruby-1.8.4-r1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
