 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:286
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : ruby
 Date    : November 26, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was found and corrected in ruby:
 
 Heap-based buffer overflow in Ruby 1.8, 1.9 before 1.9.3-p484, 2.0
 before 2.0.0-p353, 2.1 before 2.1.0 preview2, and trunk before revision
 43780 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
 (segmentation fault) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a string
 that is converted to a floating point value, as demonstrated using
 (1) the to_f method or (2) JSON.parse (CVE-2013-4164).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
