 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2009:325 

 Package : ruby
 Date    : December 7, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in ruby:
 ext/openssl/ossl_ocsp.c in Ruby 1.8 and 1.9 does not properly check
 the return value from the OCSP_basic_verify function, which might allow
 remote attackers to successfully present an invalid X.509 certificate,
 possibly involving a revoked certificate (CVE-2009-0642).
 The BigDecimal library in Ruby 1.8.6 before p369 and 1.8.7 before
 p173 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
 (application crash) via a string argument that represents a large
 number, as demonstrated by an attempted conversion to the Float data
 type (CVE-2009-1904).
 Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
 Corporate products.
 This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities.
