We have released Ruby 1.8.6-pl369.  This is primarily a security release.

A flaw was found with BigDecimal that could be exploited to cause the
interpreter to segfault because it mishandled certain large input
values.  As ActiveRecord uses BigDecimal, this issue could potentially
affect many Rails installations, though this is not a Rails specific
issue.  The result is that an attacker could potentially deliver a
denial of service attack to many applications.  This vulnerability has
been assigned the CVE name CVE-2009-1904.

This issue affects all Ruby 1.8.6 versions prior to pl369.  New
versions can be found at ruby-lang.org:
