Description

Ruby on Rails contains a flaw that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS)
attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate manually
generated 'select tag options' upon submission to
actionpack/lib/action_view/helpers/form_options_helper.rb. 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.
