In our security update to address CVE-2008-3656  we have managed to use incorrect patch, that did not address the flaw as was stated in the advisory. Therefore, we are using CVE-2008-4310 as an identifier for this incomplete / incorrect fix. This issue is specific to the previously released Ruby updates for Red Hat Enteprise Linux 4 and 5. This is unlikely to affect anyone else that does not ship this packages based on these. No new flaw was discovered, if you've applied correct patch, you can safely ignore this CVE.  https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0897.html Thanks, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
