Description filip ambroz 2020-10-07 07:01:06 UTC
An issue was discovered in Ruby through 2.5.8, 2.6.x through 2.6.6, and 2.7.x through 2.7.1. WEBrick, a simple HTTP server bundled with Ruby, had not checked the transfer-encoding header value rigorously. An attacker may potentially exploit this issue to bypass a reverse proxy (which also has a poor header check), which may lead to an HTTP Request Smuggling attack.

dev-lang/ruby 2.7.2 has been added.

We do not package the webrick gem.

Upstream has not released new versions for the ruby 2.5 and 2.6 slots. I assume that this will be released shortly as well. If not then we can apply the patch sets from the referenced bug.

3.0.0 is unaffected (it's always had the patch). Just waiting for 2.5 cleanup here now, removal in a couple weeks.
