I spend a lot of time working with the Ruby programming language and the Rails framework. There was a huge security vulnerability announced today and we were all told to apply the patch. Unfortunately we weren’t told exactly why, or what the vulnerability is.

Many of us have looked at the source code and figured it out.

Looks like the storm is over. The core team has patched the holes and most people are safe.
