Detail

The REXML parser in Ruby 1.9.x before 1.9.3-p550, 2.0.x before 2.0.0-p594, and 2.1.x before 2.1.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted XML document, aka an XML Entity Expansion (XEE) attack.

Title: USN-2397-1 -- Ruby vulnerabilities
Description: Will Wood discovered that Ruby incorrectly handled the encodes() function. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Ruby to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the vulnerability to a denial of service. (<a href="http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/CVE-2014-4975">CVE-2014-4975</a>) Willis Vandevanter discovered that Ruby incorrectly handled XML entity expansion. An attacker could use this flaw to cause Ruby to consume large amounts of resources, resulting in a denial of service.
