Description

Puppet 2.6.x before 2.6.15 and 2.7.x before 2.7.13, and Puppet Enterprise (PE) Users 1.0, 1.1, 1.2.x, 2.0.x, and 2.5.x before 2.5.1 uses predictable file names when installing Mac OS X packages from a remote source, which allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files or install arbitrary packages via a symlink attack on a temporary file in /tmp.

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-admin-puppet

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
