MDKSA-2004:128: ruby Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the ruby package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:128 (ruby).

Andres Salomon noticed a problem with the CGI session management in Ruby. The
CGI:Session's FileStore implementations store session information in an
insecure manner by just creating files and ignoring permission issues

The ruby developers have corrected a problem in the ruby CGI module that can be
triggered remotely and cause an inifinite loop on the server (CVE-2004-0983).

The updated packages are patched to prevent these problems.
