Description Kurt Seifried 2013-01-15 02:24:46 EST
A flaw that was fixed in 1.4.4, 1.3.9, 1.2.7, and 1.1.5 was also announced [4]
that creates a minor denial of service condition, this time in the 
Rack::Auth::AbstractRequest, where it symbolized arbitrary strings (apparently
this has something to do with authentication, but there is no further 
information provided other than the fix [5] itself, which is noted as "a 
breaking API change").
