Roundup Here is a brief look at some of the other security stories floating around right now.
Earlier this month, an alert went out to Ruby on Rails developers after it was discovered that a popular package had been hijacked and injected with malicious code.
Ruby gem strong_password tarnished
Tute Costa was going through the gems used for his Ruby application and checking for updates when he noticed that something was amiss with the strong_password package.
It was eventually concluded that the GitHub account managing the gem had been hijacked from its original owner and then had a bit of malicious code inserted. Costa alerted both the original owner and the Ruby on Rails security team.
