Description Vincent Danen 2011-08-20 04:28:58 UTC
A response splitting flaw in Ruby on Rails 2.3.x was reported [1] that could allow a remote attacker to inject arbitrary HTTP headers into a response due to insufficient sanitization of the values provided for response content types.

This is corrected in upstream 2.3.13 (3.0.0 and later are not vulnerable).  Patches are available in the advisory [1] and git [2].
