Project's rails version is vulnerable to DoS on using render :text RB-A1011

Security sans top 25 owasp top 10 cwe-400

Action View in Ruby on Rails 3.x before 3.2.17 converts MIME type strings to symbols during use of the render: :text option, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by including these strings in headers. Upgrading to newer versions of Rails can help fix this issue.
