|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: OpenID library for Ruby: Server-Side Request Forgery (GLSA 202003-09)
A vulnerability in OpenID library for Ruby at worst might allow an
attacker to bypass authentication.
A Ruby library for verifying and serving OpenID identities.
Vulnerable: < 2.9.2
Unaffected: >= 2.9.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was discovered that OpenID library for Ruby performed discovery
first, and then verification.
A remote attacker could possibly change the URL used for discovery and
trick the server into connecting to the URL. This server in turn could be
a private server not
In addition, if the client that uses this library discloses connection
errors, this in turn could disclose information from the private server
to the attacker.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ruby-openid users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-ruby/ruby-openid-2.9.2"
