Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-02-22 11:01:09 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2011-0449 to
the following vulnerability:

actionpack/lib/action_view/template/resolver.rb in Ruby on Rails 3.0.x
before 3.0.4, when a case-insensitive filesystem is used, does not
properly implement filters associated with the list of available
templates, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions via an action name that uses an unintended case for
alphabetic characters.
