CVE-2019-16779

Priority
Description
In RubyGem excon before 0.71.0, there was a race condition around
persistent connections, where a connection which is interrupted (such as by
a timeout) would leave data on the socket. Subsequent requests would then
read this data, returning content from the previous response. The race
condition window appears to be short, and it would be difficult to
purposefully exploit this.
