(MCollective: Remote Code Execution)
A vulnerability was discovered in MCollective which allowed for
deserialized YAML from agents without calling safe_load. This allows the
potential for arbitrary code execution on the server.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
