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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73468


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


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.


Apply SAT patch number 9033.
