candlerb found that ActiveResource, when processing responses using the
Hash.from_xml() function, does not properly sanitize filenames
(CVE-2007-5380). The session management functionality allowed the
"session_id" to be set in the URL (CVE-2007-5380). BCC discovered that
the to_json() function does not properly sanitize input before
returning it to the user (CVE-2007-3227).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
Unauthenticated remote attackers could exploit these vulnerabilities to
determine the existence of files or to read the contents of arbitrary
XML files; conduct session fixation attacks and gain unauthorized
access; and to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site by enticing a user to
browse a specially crafted URL.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Ruby on Rails users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-ruby/rails-1.2.5&quot;</code>
</resolution>
