Title:Debian LTS: Security Advisory for ruby2.1 (DLA-2192-1)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'ruby2.1'; package(s) announced via the DLA-2192-1 advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'ruby2.1'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2192-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The JSON gem through 2.2.0 for Ruby, as used in Ruby 2.1 has an
unsafe object creation vulnerability.
This is quite similar to CVE-2013-0269, but does not rely on poor
garbage-collection behavior within Ruby. Specifically, use of JSON
parsing methods can lead to creation of a malicious object within
the interpreter, with adverse effects that are application-dependent.

Affected Software/OS:
'ruby2.1' package(s) on Debian Linux.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby2.1 packages.
