Fedora 16 : puppet-2.6.17-2.fc16 (2012-10897)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60146


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This is an upstream security release. It addresses a number of issues found in puppet-2.6.x. The Red Hat security team has rated this update as having low security impact.

Refer to the upstream release notes and bugzilla entries for further details.


NetworkManager compatibility should be improved in this release, thanks to Orion Poplawski (any bugs in implementing Orion's suggested dispatcher script are my own).

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.
