Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2011-13633

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : puppet
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 2.6.6
Release     : 3.fc14
URL         : http://puppetlabs.com
Summary     : A network tool for managing many disparate systems
Description :
Puppet lets you centrally manage every important aspect of your system
using a
cross-platform specification language that manages all the separate
elements
normally aggregated in different files, like users, cron jobs, and hosts,
along with obviously discrete elements like packages, services, and files.

The following vulnerabilities have been discovered and fixed:

* CVE-2011-3870, a symlink attack via a user's SSH authorized_keys file

* CVE-2011-3871, a privilege escalation attack via the temp file  used by

A vulnerability was discovered in puppet that would allow an attacker to
install a valid X509 Certificate Signing Request at any location on disk,
with the privileges of the Puppet Master application.  For Fedora and EPEL,
this is the puppet user.

Further details can be found in the upstream announcement:

http://groups.google.com/group/puppet-users/browse_thread/thread/e57ce2740feb9406

Unless you enable puppet's listen mode on clients, only the puppet master
is vulnerable to this issue.
