SUSE SLED12 Security Update : puppet (SUSE-SU-2018:0571-1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 107115


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This update for puppet fixes the following issues :

- CVE-2017-10689: Reset permissions when unpacking tar in PMT. When using minitar, files were unpacked with whatever permissions are in the tarball. This is potentially unsafe, as tarballs can be easily created with weird permissions (bsc#1080288)

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