Ruby on Rails contains a flaw that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS)
attack. This flaw exists because input passed via the prompt value is not
properly sanitized by the select_tag 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.
