Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-03-02 11:12:10 UTC
A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way 'select' helper method of the Ruby on Rails performed HTML escaping of 'select' HTML tag options, when the tags were created manually. In this case, the select tag values might end up unescaped. A remote-attacker could provide a specially-crafted input to Ruby on Rails application, using select tags this way, which potentially resulted into arbitrary HTML or webscript execution.
