Description

Puppet Module Tool (PMT), as used in Puppet 2.7.x before 2.7.23 and 3.2.x before 3.2.4, and Puppet Enterprise 2.8.x before 2.8.3 and 3.0.x before 3.0.1, installs modules with weak permissions if those permissions were used when the modules were originally built, which might allow local users to read or modify those modules depending on the original permissions.

Solution(s)

  • 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.
