Reference: http://blog.phusion.nl/2013/01/03/rails-sql-injection-vulnerability-hold-your-horses-here-are-the-facts/
Reference: http://phenoelit.org/blog/archives/2012/12/21/let_me_github_that_for_you/index.html

The Authlogic gem for Ruby on Rails, when used with certain versions
before 3.2.10, makes potentially unsafe find_by_id method calls, which
might allow remote attackers to conduct CVE-2012-6496 SQL injection
attacks via a crafted parameter in environments that have a known
secret_token value, as demonstrated by a value contained in
secret_token.rb in an open-source product.
