Ruby on Rails Update

For all of you Ruby on Rails users out there make sure you have upgraded Rails to version 1.1.6. I know that most people don’t like to install these incremental updates because they tend to break things quite easily but this one really is a major update.

For those of you that do not know, versions of Ruby on Rails up to version 1.1.5 have suffered from a problem by which even an amateur hacker can type a URL and create a process that hangs and basically shuts down the website. I’m not going to be irresponsible and publish the affected URL’s but make sure you upgrade.
