Rails 2.3.4 is out, security vulnerabilities fixed

September 5, 2009 at 10:12 pm Leave a comment

Rails 2.3.4 is out, just a few weeks after the 2.3.3. There are no new features, the reason for this quick release are the 2 vulnerabilities found in the Rails code (one is a possible XSS epxloit and the other is a cookie hack. The release notes state that over 100 small bugs were fixed as well.

However, given the amount of problems some users have (see some comments here) – mostly as it seems with Ruby 1.9, you might want to just patch the vulnerabilities for now, or at least test before you upgrade on production ;).
