Description Murray McAllister 2014-05-27 03:06:40 UTC
Upstream reports:

In Apache 2.4, SSLCARevocationCheck directive was added to mod_ssl,
which defaults it to none and must be explicitly configured. This
setting enables checking of a certificate revocation list. The default
Puppet master vhost config shipped with Puppet does not include this
setting. If a Puppet master is set up to run with Apache 2.4, and this
default vhost configuration file is used, the Puppet master will
continue to honor a host's certificate even after it is revoked.


Red Hat would like to thank Puppet Labs for reporting this issue.

A revision was not needed here. It is OK for it to be identical to the obsoleted patch.

Comment 9 Murray McAllister 2014-06-11 01:15:55 UTC
This issue was fixed in upstream version Puppet 3.6.2.

Comment 11 Kurt Seifried 2014-06-12 07:07:59 UTC

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of puppet as shipped with Red Hat Subscription Asset Manager 1.3 as they did not include puppet-server.
