Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.54665
Category:Gentoo Local Security Checks
Title:Gentoo Security Advisory GLSA 200409-08 (dev-lang/ruby)
Summary:Gentoo Security Advisory GLSA 200409-08 (dev-lang/ruby)
Description:The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory GLSA 200409-08.

When used for CGI scripting, Ruby creates session files in /tmp with the
permissions of the default umask. Depending on that umask, local users may
be able to read sensitive data stored in session files.

Solution:
All Ruby users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv '>=dev-lang/ruby-your_version'
# emerge '>=dev-lang/ruby-your_version'
