Test ID:
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1139-1 (ruby1.6)
The remote host is missing an update to ruby1.6
announced via advisory DSA 1139-1.

It was discovered that the interpreter for the Ruby language does not
properly maintain safe levels for aliasing, directory accesses and
regular expressions, which might lead to a bypass of security

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.6.8-12sarge2.

The unstable distribution (sid) does no longer contain ruby1.6 packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your Ruby packages.
