A code injection vulnerability in Rails would allow an attacker who controlled the `locals` argument of a `render` call to perform a possible remote code execution.
There is a potential Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Action View's translation helpers. Views that allow the user to control the default (not found) value of the `t` and `translate` helpers could be susceptible to XSS attacks. When an HTML-unsafe string is passed as the default for a missing translation key named html or ending in _html, the default string is incorrectly marked as HTML-safe and not escaped.
For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 2:4.1.8-1+deb8u8.
We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
