mapbox-rails Content Injection via TileJSON attribute

Mapbox.js versions 1.x prior to 1.6.5 and 2.x prior to 2.1.7 are vulnerable
to a cross-site-scripting attack in certain uncommon usage scenarios.

If you use or L.mapbox.tileLayer to load untrusted TileJSON
content from a non-Mapbox URL, it is possible for a malicious user with
control over the TileJSON content to inject script content into the
"attribution" value of the TileJSON which will be executed in the context of
the page using Mapbox.js.

Such usage is uncommon. The following usage scenarios are not vulnerable:

* only trusted TileJSON content is loaded
* TileJSON content comes only from URLs
* a Mapbox map ID is supplied, rather than a TileJSON URL
