Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-325-1 (ruby1.8)

The remote host is missing an update to ruby1.8
announced via advisory USN-325-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04
Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The alias function, certain directory operations, and regular
expressions did not correctly implement safe levels. Depending on the
application these flaws might allow attackers to bypass safe level
restrictions and perform unintended operations.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.04:
libruby1.8 1.8.1+1.8.2pre4-1ubuntu0.4
ruby1.8 1.8.1+1.8.2pre4-1ubuntu0.4

Ubuntu 5.10:
libruby1.8 1.8.2-9ubuntu1.2
ruby1.8 1.8.2-9ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libruby1.8 1.8.4-1ubuntu1.1
ruby1.8 1.8.4-1ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
