DESCRIPTION:
A weakness has been reported in Ruby, which can be exploited by
malicious, local users to bypass certain security restrictions.

The weakness is caused due to a boundary error within the filename
handling on Windows systems, which can be exploited to cause a buffer
overflow by e.g. assigning a specially crafted value to the
"ARGF.inplace_mode" variable.

The weakness is reported in Ruby 1.9.1 patchlevel 378 on Windows
systems. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.9.1-p429.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
The vendor credits Masaya TARUI.
