Foresight Linux Essential Advisory: 2007-0068-1
Published: 2007-11-11

Rating: Minor

Updated Versions:
    ruby=/conary.rpath.com () rpl:devel//1/1.8.6_p110-1-0.1
    group-dist=/foresight.rpath.org () fl:1-devel//1/1.4.1-0.2-3

References:
    http://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-5162

Description:
    Previous versions of the ruby package include a library, Net::HTTPS, which
    does not properly verify the CN (common name) field in ssl certificates,
    making it easier to perform a man-in-the-middle attack.

    It is believed that Foresight Linux does not include any programs which
    rely on this feature of the Net::HTTPS library, and so is not affected by
    default.
