--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : ruby
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.8.7.358
Release     : 4.fc16
URL         : http://www.ruby-lang.org/
Summary     : An interpreter of object-oriented scripting language
Description :
Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and easy
object-oriented programming.  It has many features to process text
files and to do system management tasks (as in Perl).  It is simple,
straight-forward, and extensible.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Some security flaws were found on ruby currently shipped on Fedora 17 where
malicious user can bypass safe mechanize by raising exception intentionally
and make arbitrary strings tainted. This flaw were now registered as
CVE-2012-4464 and CVE-2012-4466.

Note that CVE-2012-4464 is basically the same as CVE-2011-1005, which was
supposed to be already fixed on ruby 1.8.x branch but it proved that the
fix was incomplete.

This new rpm will fix the above issue.
