Another Success Story for a Critical Update: Assembla Patched
January has been a good month for Rails patches. With the latest vulnerability released about 1 hour ago, we were quick again to patch our application. Again our internal process was instrumental in allowing such a fast patch - within an hour from being notified of the issues. This is the 3rd time this month that we have had such a situation and responded in similar fashion.
This patch was a group effort with Lawrence Pit of Mirror42, the RedHat Security team, and the Rails Core Team. The interaction of these groups is what makes the open source community work and so great to work within.
Thanks goes out to Artiom Diomin, Stanislav Kolotinskiy and of course Michael Koziarski and the Rails community for fixing this vulnerability so quickly. Without the work of the various members of the different teams, we would not be able to continue such fast patches.
