Ruby Advisory Database
The Ruby Advisory Database aims to compile all advisories that are relevant to Ruby libraries.
- Provide advisory metadata in a simple yet structured YAML schema for automated tools to consume.
- Avoid reinventing CVEs.
- Avoid duplicating the efforts of the OSVDB.
The database is a list of directories that match the names of Ruby libraries on rubygems.org. Within each directory are one or more advisory files for the Ruby library. These advisory files are typically named using the advisories OSVDB identifier number.
gems/: actionpack/: OSVDB-79727.yml OSVDB-84513.yml OSVDB-89026.yml OSVDB-91454.yml OSVDB-84243.yml OSVDB-84515.yml OSVDB-91452.yml
Each advisory file contains the advisory information in YAML format:
--- gem: actionpack framework: rails cve: 2013-0156 osvdb: 89026 url: http://osvdb.org/show/osvdb/89026 title: | Ruby on Rails params_parser.rb Action Pack Type Casting Parameter Parsing Remote Code Execution description: | Ruby on Rails contains a flaw in params_parser.rb of the Action Pack. The issue is triggered when a type casting error occurs during the parsing of parameters. This may allow a remote attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code. cvss_v2: 10.0 patched_versions: - ~> 2.3.15 - ~> 3.0.19 - ~> 3.1.10 - ">= 3.2.11"
