Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:201
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : ruby
Date : July 26, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in ruby:

A flaw was found in Ruby's SSL client's hostname identity check
when handling certificates that contain hostnames with NULL
bytes. An attacker could potentially exploit this flaw to conduct
man-in-the-middle attacks to spoof SSL servers. Note that to exploit
this issue, an attacker would need to obtain a carefully-crafted
certificate signed by an authority that the client trusts
(CVE-2013-4073).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
