Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'rails'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2403-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
A potential Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability was found in rails,
a ruby based MVC framework. Views that allow the user to control the
default (not found) value of the `t` and `translate` helpers could be
susceptible to XSS attacks. When an HTML-unsafe string is passed as the
default for a missing translation key named html or ending in _html, the
default string is incorrectly marked as HTML-safe and not escaped.

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

Solution:
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
2:4.2.7.1-1+deb9u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.

CVSS Score:
4.3
