In Rails 4.2 the sanitization implementation uses Loofah by default. Previously html-scanner was used for this. This gem includes that old behavior for easier migration and it will be supported until Rails 5.

If you need this behavior, add the gem to an applications gemfile, run bundle and the deprecated behavior is installed.

gem 'rails-deprecated_sanitizer'

You can read more about the new behavior here: rails-html-sanitizer.
