Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the interpreter for

security problems. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

    can lead to a Denial of Service by consuming all host memory.

    checking in Ruby's SSL client that could allow man-in-the-middle
    attackers to spoof SSL servers via valid certificate issued by a
    trusted certification authority.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.2.0-2+deb6u1.

version 1.9.3.194-8.1+deb7u1.
