An unsafe use of temporary files was discovered in Puppet, a tool for centralized configuration management. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability and overwrite an arbitrary file in the system.
For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.6.2-5+squeeze9. For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.23-1~deb7u2. For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 3.4.0-1. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.4.0-1. We recommend that you upgrade your puppet packages.
This package contains the startup script and compatbility scripts for the puppet agent, which is the process responsible for configuring the local node.
