GitLab not affected by Rails vulnerability CVE-2014-7818

Yesterday the developers of Ruby on Rails released a security advisory for file existence disclosure vulnerability CVE-2014-7818. GitLab is not affected by this vulnerability.


CVE-2014-7818 affects Rails applications which have the config.serve_static_assets = true setting. GitLab is shipped with config.serve_static_assets set to false in config/environments/production.rb because it lets NGINX (or Apache) serve static files.
