========================================================================== Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2077-2 January 09, 2014 puppet regression ========================================================================== A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives: - Ubuntu 13.10 - Ubuntu 13.04 - Ubuntu 12.10 - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Summary: USN-2077-1 introduced a regression in Puppet. Software Description: - puppet: Centralized configuration management Details: USN-2077-1 fixed a vulnerability in Puppet. The upstream patch introduced a regression resulting in the default file mode being incorrect. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience. Original advisory details: It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled temporary files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to overwrite arbitrary files. In the default installation of Ubuntu, this should be prevented by the Yama link restrictions. Update instructions: The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions: Ubuntu 13.10: puppet-common 3.2.4-2ubuntu2.3 Ubuntu 13.04: puppet-common 2.7.18-4ubuntu1.4 Ubuntu 12.10: puppet-common 2.7.18-1ubuntu1.5 Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: puppet-common 2.7.11-1ubuntu2.7 In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
