Description

Action Mailer Gem for Ruby contains a format string flaw in the Log Subscriber component. The issue is triggered as format string specifiers (e.g. %s and %x) are not properly sanitized in user-supplied input when handling email addresses. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service
