Hi Folks,

Ubuntu sent out a security announcement re Ruby 1.8 this morning:  
<http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-273-1> I am trying to find background 
information on this to aid in analyzing its impact on our Web 
operations. (We run several Webrick-powered applications behind Apache 
reverse proxies.)

Where did Matz. announce this? Looking over list threads recently, I 
don't see discussion on this (or am I just missing it?). Do you have any 
information on the significance of this issue and the Ruby community's 
suggested response to it?

Thank you,
Ben
