Mandrake Ruby network libraries Net::HTTP, Net::IMAP, Net::FTPTLS, Net::Telnet, Net::POP3, and Net::SMTP, up to Ruby version 1.8.6 are affected by a possible man-in-the-middle attack, when using SSL, due to a missing check of the CN (common name) attribute in SSL certificates against the server's hostname. The updated packages have been patched to prevent the issue.
