Ruby http/xmlrpc server DoS

A bug was found in the way ruby creates its http (and thus xmlrpc)
server.  The server uses blocking sockets, so if it is possible to
send a very large amount of data via the socket, the server will block
other connections resulting in a denial of service.

The original report (and patch) are here:

A reproducer is described here:

This issue also affects FC4
Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2006-04-21 00:51:29 EDT
As I said in the mail, those issues has been fixed in 1.8.3.
So it won't affects ruby packages on FC since we've already pushed 1.8.4 for them.
