Hi Folks,

Ubuntu sent out a security announcement re Ruby 1.8 this morning:
<http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-273-1> I am trying to find background
information on this to aid in analyzing its impact on our Web
operations. (We run several Webrick-powered applications behind Apache
reverse proxies.)

Where did Matz. announce this? Looking over list threads recently, I
don't see discussion on this (or am I just missing it?). Do you have any
information on the significance of this issue and the Ruby community's
suggested response to it?

Thank you,
Ben

Not sure, but maybe these are relevant:

http://www.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/ruby/l...
http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/...

It looks like the issue was fixed by 1.8.3-preview2.
