SuSE 11.3 Security Update : puppet (SAT Patch Number 9033)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

The deployment framework puppet received an update for a security
issue in January.

The backport of this security issue was however incomplete and broke
existing setups. As the scope of the problem is limited to local
scenarios where an attacker likely has access already, and backporting
is not trivial, this update reverts the fix for now.

We are evaluating the possibility of an update to puppet 2.7 in the
future.
