Ruby on Rails contains a flaw that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS)
attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate input
passed via the 'strip_tags' helper method before returning it to the user.
This may allow a user to create a specially crafted request that would
execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust
relationship between their browser and the server.
