We just heard that malicious libraries were uploaded to RubyGems. My question here is, how can we find out which libraries are malicious or whether we have installed them? Do you plan on publishing a list?

    Hi Tya,

    We maintain a wiki for most of them gems we removed for security reasons, you can find it here:

    whether we have installed them?

    Note that your host could have only installed the gem if you or any of the libraries you used made a typo matching the above mentioned list.
