ID CVE-2015-7581
Summary actionpack/lib/action_dispatch/routing/route_set.rb in Action Pack in Ruby on Rails 4.x before 4.2.5.1 and 5.x before 5.0.0.beta1.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (superfluous caching and memory consumption) by leveraging an application's use of a wildcard controller route.
