Debian security advisory DSA-4743-1 ruby-kramdown.

Package: ruby-kramdown
CVE ID: CVE-2020-14001
Debian Bug: 965305

A flaw was discovered in ruby-kramdown, a fast, pure ruby, Markdown parser and converter, which could result in unintended read access to files or unintended embedded Ruby code execution when the {::options /} extension is used together with the 'template' option.

The Update introduces a new option 'forbidden_inline_options' to restrict the options allowed with the {::options /} extension.

By default the 'template' option is forbidden.

For the stable distribution Debian 10 "Buster", this problem has been fixed in version 1.17.0-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-kramdown packages.

For the detailed security status of ruby-kramdown please refer to its security tracker page.
