Fedora 12 : puppet-0.25.4-1.fc12 (2010-1372)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 47249


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


The update from 0.24.x to 0.25.x brings many, many changes and improvements to puppet. The upstream release notes cover them in detail: http://reductivelabs.com/trac/puppet/wiki/ReleaseNotes Of note is that 0.25.x clients do not work with 0.24.x masters, so it is important to update the master before or at the same time as clients.

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.


Update the affected puppet package.
