Description Adam Mariš 2017-09-14 09:03:34 UTC
Versions of the puppetlabs-apache module prior to 1.11.1 and 2.1.0 make it very easy to accidentally misconfigure TLS trust. If you specify the ssl_ca parameter but do not specify the ssl_certs_dir parameter, a default will be provided for the ssl_certs_dir that will trust certificates from any of the system-trusted certificate authorities. This did not affect FreeBSD.

Affected versions: puppetlabs-apache 0.7.0 - 1.11.0, puppetlabs-apache 2.x prior to 2.1.0
