Update ruby-actionpack31 to 3.1.8.
## Rails 3.1.8 (Aug 9, 2012)
* There is an XSS vulnerability in the strip_tags helper in Ruby on Rails, the
helper doesn't correctly handle malformed html. As a result an attacker can
*Marek from Nethemba (www.nethemba.com) & Santiago Pastorino*
* When a "prompt" value is supplied to the `select_tag` helper, the
"prompt" value is not escaped.
If untrusted data is not escaped, and is supplied as the prompt value,
there is a potential for XSS attacks.
Vulnerable code will look something like this:
select_tag("name", options, :prompt => UNTRUSTED_INPUT)
