CVE-2007-5162

Status Candidate

Overview

The connect method in lib/net/http.rb in the (1) Net::HTTP and (2) Net::HTTPS libraries in Ruby 1.8.5 and 1.8.6 does not verify that the commonName (CN) field in a server certificate matches the domain name in an HTTPS request, which makes it easier for remote attackers to intercept SSL transmissions via a man-in-the-middle attack or spoofed web site.

Ubuntu Security Notice 596-1
Posted Mar 26, 2008
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 596-1 - Chris Clark discovered that Ruby's HTTPS module did not check for commonName mismatches early enough during SSL negotiation. If a remote attacker were able to perform man-in-the-middle attacks, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information in HTTPS requests coming from Ruby applications. It was discovered that Ruby's FTPTLS, telnets, and IMAPS modules did not check the commonName when performing SSL certificate checks. If a remote attacker were able to perform man-in-the-middle attacks, this flaw could be exploited to eavesdrop on encrypted communications from Ruby applications using these protocols.
