GitLab 6.3.1 security release

We have just released GitLab Community Edition 6.3.1 and GitLab Enterprise Edition 6.3.1 in response to this week's Ruby on Rails security update 3.2.16. We advise all our users to upgrade to GitLab Community Edition 6.3.1 or GitLab Enterprise Edition 6.3.1 immediately.

Ruby on Rails security update 3.2.16 addresses four security issues, including denial of service through memory exhaustion.

Versions affected: all

Versions fixed: GitLab Community Edition 6.3.1, GitLab Enterprise Edition 6.3.1


GitLab Community Edition 6.3.1 is available at GitLab Cloud and GitHub. GitLab Enterprise Edition 6.3.1 is available for subscribers at GitLab Cloud. Update instructions can be found here.


Users who cannot upgrade can address the DoS vulnerability by applying a patch based on the workaround provided by Rails in /home/git/gitlab with git am and restarting GitLab.
