Important Security fix: Rails applications updated on BitNami

In the last two days several patches for Rails have been released in order to address extremely critical security issues. We want to let BitNami users know that all our Rails-based application installers, virtual machines and cloud images have been already updated and released.

Redmine, Spree, Typo, Radiant, Gitorious and Tracks and other Ruby on Rails based projects are already releasing new versions to provide fixes to those security issues. We did not want to wait and we already released patched versions of these applications. We will be upgrading those to officially released versions once available.

We have also updated our Ruby Stack to include the latest version of Rails.

We are also removing older versions of BitNami Rails apps published on the Amazon Cloud catalog and marketplace and that may be vulnerable to these security issues.

For more details about these security issues please check the information provided in the official Ruby On Rails blog. If you already have installed a version of these applications please make sure that you update your environment or apply the appropriate patches.
