Looks like WEBrick isn't ready for production, but then I think most only use it with rails development, if not you may reconsider using in any production capacity until this flaw is addressed. http://rob.muhlestein.net/2006/12/webrick-security-flaw.html

First, you are right, that did sound like FUD toward Ruby and you are right to point out that WEBrick is generally not recommended for production. I've changed the blog post hopefully to not appear as FUD toward Ruby itself, but it definitely is FUD for unsuspecting newbies who might try to use WEBrick as a production web server (a big mistake imho with the current state of WEBrick, but hopefully we can fix that). BTW, I wouldn't be bothering with these posts and fix discussions if I didn't want to see Ruby, Rails, and even WEBrick succeed.
