Description Kurt Seifried 2012-07-11 01:02:38 EDT
From puppet labs: CVE-2012-3865 (Arbitrary file delete/D.O.S on Puppet Master) A bug in Puppet 2.6.16 and 2.7.17 allows authenticated clients to delete arbitrary files on the puppet master. Given a Puppet master with the “Delete” method allowed in auth.conf for an authenticated host, an attacker on that host can send a specially crafted Delete request that can cause an arbitrary file deletion on the Puppet master, potentially causing a denial of service attack. Note that this vulnerability does *not* exist in Puppet as configured by default; auth.conf must first be edited to enable deletion. Resolved in Puppet 2.6.17, 2.7.18
