[SECURITY] [DLA 1222-1] ruby1.8 security update

Package        : ruby1.8
Version        :
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-17405 CVE-2017-17790

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the interpreter for the
Ruby language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:


    A command injection vulnerability in Net::FTP might allow a
    malicious FTP server the execution of arbitrary commands.


    A command injection vulnerability in lib/resolv.rb's lazy_initialze
    might allow a command injection attack. However untrusted input to
    this function is rather unlikely.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby1.8 packages.
