Description

Puppet before 2.6.18, 2.7.x before 2.7.21, and 3.1.x before 3.1.1, and Puppet Enterprise before 1.2.7 and 2.7.x before 2.7.2, when listening for incoming connections is enabled and allowing access to the "run" REST endpoint is allowed, allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTTP request.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-puppet
  • suse-upgrade-puppet-server

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.
