Fedora 17 : puppet-2.7.13-1.fc17 (2012-6674)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

With Fedora 17 using ruby-1.9.3, an update to puppet-2.7, which has
improved support for ruby-1.9, is required. Note that ruby-1.9 is not
fully supported in the puppet-2.7 series. Where possible, patches from
the next upstream release branch will be backported to improve
ruby-1.9 compatibility.

Also note that there will likely be issues when connecting to a
puppet-2.6 master. This is unavoidable for the moment. Normally all
Fedora and EPEL branches are kept in sync to avoid this problem. At
this time, a decision to move all branches to 2.7 has not been made.

This update obsoletes puppet-2.6.16, which fixed several security
issues recently found in puppet related to filebucket functionality.
For full details, refer to the upstream release notes :


Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
