Possible Information Leak Vulnerability in Action View

There is a possible directory traversal and information leak vulnerability in
Action View. This vulnerability has been assigned the CVE identifier

Versions Affected:  All.
Not affected:       None.
Fixed Versions:     5.0.0.beta1.1,,,

Applications that pass unverified user input to the `render` method in a
controller may be vulnerable to an information leak vulnerability.

Impacted code will look something like this:

def index
  render params[:id]

Carefully crafted requests can cause the above code to render files from
unexpected places like outside the application's view directory, and can
possibly escalate this to a remote code execution attack.

@maintainer(s): since the fixed version is already in the tree, please remove the affected versions.

Vulnerable versions for Rails 3.2, 4.1, and 4.2 have been removed.
Comment 2 Aaron Bauman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-06-05 12:23:34 UTC
