Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : puppet (MDVSA-2013:186)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated puppet packages fix remote code execution vulnerability

When making REST api calls, the puppet master takes YAML from an
untrusted client, deserializes it, and then calls methods on the
resulting object. A YAML payload can be crafted to cause the
deserialization to construct an instance of any class available in the
ruby process, which allows an attacker to execute code contained in
the payload (CVE-2013-3567).
