Description Jeff Sheltren 2006-11-09 17:34:01 EST
A flaw was discovered in the way Ruby's CGI module handles certain
multipart/form-data MIME data. If a remote attacker sends a specially
crafted multipart-form-data request, it is possible to cause the ruby
CGI script to enter an infinite loop, causing a denial of service.

Redhat announcement:

I think both FC3 and FC4 need patches.
