892866: CVE-2013-0155 rubygem-actionpack, rubygem-activerecord: Unsafe Query Generation Risk in Ruby on Rails

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

Ruby on Rails 3.0.x before 3.0.19, 3.1.x before 3.1.10, and 3.2.x before 3.2.11 does not properly consider differences in parameter handling between the Active Record component and the JSON implementation, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended database-query restrictions and perform NULL checks or trigger missing WHERE clauses via a crafted request, as demonstrated by certain "[nil]" values, a related issue to CVE-2012-2660 and CVE-2012-2694.
