Title: Haml: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 202007-27)
A flaw in Haml allows arbitrary code execution as a result of
Haml is a templating engine for HTML.
Vulnerable: < 5.1.2
Unaffected: >= 5.1.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was discovered that Haml was not correctly filtering out special
characters which may be used for attributes.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Haml users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-ruby/haml-5.1.2"
