Subject: CVE Request -- rubygems: Two security fixes in upstream v1.8.23 version

Hello Kurt, Steve, Eric, Evan, vendors,

   two security fixes has been recently corrected in upstream rubygems-v1.8.23 version:
   #1 RubyGems now disallows redirection from HTTPS to HTTP.
   #2 RubyGems now verifies SSL connections.

[1] (rubygems History.txt)
     (relevant rubygems git commit)
     (Ruby v1.9.3-p194 version announcement)
     (Ruby language SVN repository commit)
     (Red Hat bugzilla entry)

Both of [2] and [4] patches include fixes for both issues. For the case #2
the security implications are clear.

Kurt, could you allocate two CVE ids for these issues?

Thank you && Regards, Jan.
