Description Murray McAllister 2014-05-27 03:04:03 UTC
Running Puppet, Mcollective, Facter, or Hiera on a host that has a version of Ruby older than 1.9.2 could result in a Ruby module being loaded from the current working directory. If Puppet, Mcollective, Facter, or Hiera were run from an attacker-controlled directory, it could result in arbitrary code execution. This issue affects all versions of Puppet, Mcollective, and Hiera. It affects Facter versions 1.6.x and 2.x.

This is due to an underlying issue in Ruby that was fixed in version 1.9.2: https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2010/08/18/ruby-1-9.2-released

Comment 22 Fedora Update System 2014-07-03 17:57:22 UTC
mcollective-2.2.3-2.el6 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 23 Fedora Update System 2014-07-03 17:58:05 UTC
hiera-1.0.0-4.el6 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 24 Kurt Seifried 2014-09-17 19:39:39 UTC
Please note that we ship Ruby 1.9.3 in virtually all products (the exception being RHEL 4 and 5 base, however many products that run on these, e.g. SAM 1.4 ship their own up to date Ruby 1.9.3).

Comment 25 Kurt Seifried 2014-09-17 19:40:51 UTC
Please note that OpenStack 4 and 5 only run on RHEL 6 and 7, which have Ruby 1.9.3 so notaffected either.

Comment 26 Kurt Seifried 2014-09-17 19:42:26 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of Puppet, Mcollective, Facter, or Hiera as shipped with various Red Hat Enterprise products as they all run on top of Ruby 1.9.3 or later.

Comment 28 Lukas Zapletal 2014-10-20 10:57:49 UTC
For the record - in F19 branch I struggled with releasing a backport fix because the patch for this CVE/NOTABUG was never removed from the branch. I am reverting it (commenting the patch line out the SPEC).

Comment 29 Fedora Update System 2014-11-22 04:14:45 UTC
facter-1.6.18-7.el6 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 30 Fedora Update System 2014-11-22 12:33:29 UTC
facter-1.7.6-1.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
