3. Description:

Ruby on Rails is a model-view-controller (MVC) framework for web
application development. Action Pack implements the controller and the
view components.

A flaw was found in the way Ruby on Rails performed JSON parameter parsing.
An application using a third party library, which uses the Rack::Request
interface, or custom Rack middleware could bypass the protection
implemented to fix the CVE-2013-0155 vulnerability, causing the application
to receive unsafe parameters and become vulnerable to CVE-2013-0155.
(CVE-2013-6417)

It was discovered that the internationalization component of Ruby on Rails
could, under certain circumstances, return a fallback HTML string that
contained user input. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to
perform a reflective cross-site scripting (XSS) attack by providing a
specially crafted input to an application using the aforementioned
component. (CVE-2013-4491)

A denial of service flaw was found in the header handling component of
Action View. A remote attacker could send strings in specially crafted
headers that would be cached indefinitely, which would result in all
available system memory eventually being consumed. (CVE-2013-6414)

It was found that the number_to_currency Action View helper did not
properly escape the unit parameter. An attacker could use this flaw to
perform a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack on an application that uses
data submitted by a user in the unit parameter. (CVE-2013-6415)

Users of Red Hat OpenStack 3.0 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues.

4. Solution:
