Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : puppet (MDVSA-2013:222)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Updated puppet and puppet3 package fix security vulnerabilities :

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled the resource_type
service. A local attacker on the master could use this issue to
execute arbitrary Ruby files (CVE-2013-4761).

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled permissions on the
modules it installed. Modules could be installed with the permissions
that existed when they were built, possibly exposing them to a local
attacker (CVE-2013-4956).

Solution :

Update the affected puppet and / or puppet-server packages.
