Description Kurt Seifried 2012-02-15 22:09:31 UTC
There have been two vulnerabilities discovered in Puppet
(CVE-2012-1053 and CVE-2012-1054).  Puppet Labs is currently working
with distribution
maintainers, as well as key customers to ensure we are able to patch
this vulnerability before it is exploited.

The CVEs and issues have not been made public yet. We appreciate your
discretion at this time. We have included patches for 2.6.x and 2.7.x.
If you need help with patches for other series or versions of Puppet,
please let us know.


# Summary #

(#12460) Klogin type will write to untrusted locations (write through symlinks)

#12460 - Klogin File Handling Issue (Write through symlink)

High risk for users of this type. Users can symlink to arbitrary files, causing
them to be overwritten, such as other klogin files (including root).

This is embargoed, no release date has been set yet, I have contacted PuppetLabs and requested more information.

Patch for CVE-2012-1053 and CVE-2012-1054

Comment 6 Todd Zullinger 2012-02-22 05:47:06 UTC
Per conversation with Michael Stahnke at Puppet Labs, the release that was planned for tonight has been pushed to tomorrow.  I noticed a minor regression in the 2.6.14 packages we'll be using, so they're going to fix that up before release.
