Updated ruby packages fix security vulnerabilitiesPublication date: 31 Dec 2017
Affected Mageia releases : 5 , 6
CVE: CVE-2017-17405 , CVE-2017-17790
Ruby before 2.4.3 allows Net::FTP command injection. Net::FTP#get, getbinaryfile, gettextfile, put, putbinaryfile, and puttextfile use Kernel#open to open a local file. If the localfile argument starts with the "|" pipe character, the command following the pipe character is executed. The default value of localfile is File.basename(remotefile), so malicious FTP servers could cause arbitrary command execution (CVE-2017-17405). The lazy_initialize function in lib/resolv.rb in Ruby through 2.4.3 uses Kernel#open, which might allow Command Injection attacks, as demonstrated by a Resolv::Hosts::new argument beginning with a '|' character (CVE-2017-17790).
