1 CVE-2018-8780 22 Dir. Trav. 2018-04-03 2019-07-21
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
In Ruby before 2.2.10, 2.3.x before 2.3.7, 2.4.x before 2.4.4, 2.5.x before 2.5.1, and 2.6.0-preview1, the Dir.open, Dir.new, Dir.entries and Dir.empty? methods do not check NULL characters. When using the corresponding method, unintentional directory traversal may be performed.
2 CVE-2013-4073 310 2013-08-17 2018-08-13
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
The OpenSSL::SSL.verify_certificate_identity function in lib/openssl/ssl.rb in Ruby 1.8 before 1.8.7-p374, 1.9 before 1.9.3-p448, and 2.0 before 2.0.0-p247 does not properly handle a '\0' character in a domain name in the Subject Alternative Name field of an X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408.
3 CVE-2012-4481 264 2013-05-02 2014-02-11
4.3
None Remote Medium Not required None Partial None
The safe-level feature in Ruby 1.8.7 allows context-dependent attackers to modify strings via the NameError#to_s method when operating on Ruby objects. NOTE: this issue is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-1005.
4 CVE-2012-4466 264 Bypass 2013-04-25 2014-02-11
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None Partial None
Ruby 1.8.7 before patchlevel 371, 1.9.3 before patchlevel 286, and 2.0 before revision r37068 allows context-dependent attackers to bypass safe-level restrictions and modify untainted strings via the name_err_mesg_to_str API function, which marks the string as tainted, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1005.
5 CVE-2011-1005 264 2011-03-02 2013-08-13
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None Partial None
The safe-level feature in Ruby 1.8.6 through 1.8.6-420, 1.8.7 through 1.8.7-330, and 1.8.8dev allows context-dependent attackers to modify strings via the Exception#to_s method, as demonstrated by changing an intended pathname.
6 CVE-2011-1004 59 2011-03-02 2012-05-11
6.3
None Local Medium Not required None Complete Complete
The FileUtils.remove_entry_secure method in Ruby 1.8.6 through 1.8.6-420, 1.8.7 through 1.8.7-330, 1.8.8dev, 1.9.1 through 1.9.1-430, 1.9.2 through 1.9.2-136, and 1.9.3dev allows local users to delete arbitrary files via a symlink attack.
7 CVE-2009-4492 20 Exec Code 2010-01-13 2018-10-10
5.0
None Remote Low Not required Partial None None
WEBrick 1.3.1 in Ruby 1.8.6 through patchlevel 383, 1.8.7 through patchlevel 248, 1.8.8dev, 1.9.1 through patchlevel 376, and 1.9.2dev writes data to a log file without sanitizing non-printable characters, which might allow remote attackers to modify a window's title, or possibly execute arbitrary commands or overwrite files, via an HTTP request containing an escape sequence for a terminal emulator.
8 CVE-2009-1904 189 DoS 2009-06-11 2017-09-28
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The BigDecimal library in Ruby 1.8.6 before p369 and 1.8.7 before p173 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a string argument that represents a large number, as demonstrated by an attempted conversion to the Float data type.
9 CVE-2008-3905 287 2008-09-04 2018-10-03
5.8
None Remote Medium Not required None Partial Partial

10 CVE-2008-3790 20 DoS 2008-08-27 2018-10-03
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The REXML module in Ruby 1.8.6 through 1.8.6-p287, 1.8.7 through 1.8.7-p72, and 1.9 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via an XML document with recursively nested entities, aka an "XML entity explosion."
11 CVE-2008-3657 20 Bypass 2008-08-12 2018-10-11
7.5
User Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
The dl module in Ruby 1.8.5 and earlier, 1.8.6 through 1.8.6-p286, 1.8.7 through 1.8.7-p71, and 1.9 through r18423 does not check "taintness" of inputs, which allows context-dependent attackers to bypass safe levels and execute dangerous functions by accessing a library using DL.dlopen.
12 CVE-2008-3656 399 DoS 2008-08-12 2018-10-11
7.8

Ruby 1.8.5 and earlier, 1.8.6 through 1.8.6-p286, 1.8.7 through 1.8.7-p71, and 1.9 through r18423 does not properly restrict access to critical variables and methods at various safe levels, which allows context-dependent attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via (1) untrace_var, (2) $PROGRAM_NAME, and (3) syslog at safe level 4, and (4) insecure methods at safe levels 1 through 3.
14 CVE-2008-3443 399 DoS 2008-08-14 2018-10-03
