Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55666
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLSA-2005:1030
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLSA-2005:1030
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLSA-2005:1030.

Ruby supports safe execution of untrusted code with two
mechanisms: safe level and taint flag on objects. Dr. Yutaka Oiwa
discovered a vulnerability that allows Ruby methods to bypass
these mechanisms. In systems which use this feature, this could
be exploited to execute Ruby code beyond the restrictions
specified in each safe level.

Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
