Description

The pxp-agent component in Puppet Enterprise 2015.3.x before 2015.3.3 and Puppet Agent 1.3.x before 1.3.6 does not properly validate server certificates, which might allow remote attackers to spoof brokers and execute arbitrary commands via a crafted certificate.

Solution(s)

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