Description Kurt Seifried 2012-07-11 06:34:23 UTC
From puppet labs: CVE-2012-3867 (Insufficient input validation)

A bug in Puppet 2.6.16 and 2.7.17 uses insufficient input validation for agent
certificate names.

An attacker can trick the administrator into signing an attacker’s certificate 
rather than the intended one by constructing specially crafted certificate 
requests containing specific ANSI control sequences. It is possible to use the 
sequences to rewrite the order of text displayed to an administrator such that 
display of an invalid certificate and valid certificate are transposed. If the 
administrator signs the attacker’s certificate, the attacker can then 
man-in-the-middle the deployment’s agent nodes.

Resolved in Puppet 2.6.17, 2.7.18
