Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.53971
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-146-1 (ruby1.8)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-146-1 (ruby1.8)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to ruby1.8
announced via advisory USN-146-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected: libxmlrpc-ruby1.8, ruby1.8

Nobuhiro IMAI discovered that the changed default value of the
Module#public_instance_methods() method broke the security protection
of XMLRPC server handlers. A remote attacker could exploit this to
execute arbitrary commands on an XMLRPC server.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1.8.1+1.8.2pre2-3ubuntu0.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or
1.8.1+1.8.2pre4-1ubuntu0.1 (for Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard
system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes
however,
if you run custom XMLRPC servers implemented in Ruby, you have to
restart them.
