Ruby Advisory Database

The Ruby Advisory Database is a community effort to compile all security advisories that are relevant to Ruby libraries.

You can check your own Gemfile.locks against this database by using bundler-audit.

Support Ruby security!

Do you know about a vulnerability that isn't listed in this database? Open an issue, submit a PR, or use this form which will email the maintainers.

Directory Structure

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 named using the advisories' CVE identifier number.

    CVE-2014-0130.yml  CVE-2014-7818.yml  CVE-2014-7829.yml  CVE-2015-7576.yml
    CVE-2015-7581.yml  CVE-2016-0751.yml  CVE-2016-0752.yml


Each advisory file contains the advisory information in YAML format:

gem: examplegem
cve: 2013-0156
url: https://github.com/rubysec/ruby-advisory-db/issues/123456
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.
