redcarpet Gem for Ruby contains a flaw that allows a cross-site scripting
(XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the parse_inline() function in
markdown.c does not validate input before returning it to users. This may
allow a remote attacker to create a specially crafted request that would
execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust
relationship between their browser and the server.
