Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-04-09 09:57:46 UTC
From ${URL} :

Ruby OpenSSL hostname matching implementation violates RFC 6125.

- Wildcard matching code allowed multiple wildcards (e.g. *.*.*)
- Wildcards were mishandled for IDNA names (ala CVE-2014-1492)

Upstream patch:


Red Hat would like to thank the Ruby upstream for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Tony 
Arcieri as the original reporter.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2015-04-13 18:07:07 UTC
The ruby team will wait for new upstream releases for this.
Comment 2 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2015-04-14 05:43:07 UTC
ruby-2.0.0_p645, ruby-2.1.6, and ruby-2.2.2 are now in the gentoo tree. These are the upstream releases where this bug is fixed. The openssl patch has also been backported to ruby-1.9.3_p551-r1. Since ruby 1.9 and ruby 2.0 only contain this security fix we can move to stablization right away:
