Description Josh Bressers 2004-11-08 11:38:49 EST
Upstream has fixed a denial of service issue in ruby.  The CGI module
could enter into an infinite loop if a specially crafted request is
sent to it.

This issue should also affect FC2.

This issue appears to also affect FC1 (Legacy).  See 
for our response to this.
Comment 3 Josh Bressers 2004-11-10 05:57:24 EST
This issue is not the same one covered by


That bug deals with insecure temporary files, this issue is a DoS. 
Both deal with the Ruby CGI layer though.
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2004-11-11 00:07:57 EST
should be fixed in 1.8.1-6.FC2.0 and 1.8.1-7.FC3.1
