CAN-2004-0755 ruby insecure file permissions

From the Debian DSA
Andres Salomon no ticed a problem in the CGI session management of
Ruby, an object-oriented scripting language. CGI::Session's FileStore
(and presumably PStore, but not in Debian woody) implementations store
session information insecurely. They simply create files, ignoring
permission issues. This can lead an attacker who has also shell
access to the webserver to take over a session.
This issue was reported to the Debian bug system
This issue should also affect FC1
this problem should be fixed in 1.8.1-6.
