Description Kurt Seifried 2012-07-11 05:24:14 UTC
From puppet labs: CVE-2012-3866 (last_run_report.yaml is world readable)

A bug in Puppet 2.7.17 leaves last_run_report.yaml world readable.

The most recent Puppet run report is stored on the Puppet master with 
world-readable permissions. The report file contains the context diffs of any 
changes to configuration on an agent, which may contain sensitive information 
that an attacker can then access. The last run report is overwritten with 
every Puppet run.

Note: This only affects the 2.7 series of Puppet.

Resolved in Puppet 2.7.18
