 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:186

 Package : puppet
 Date    : June 28, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0

 Problem Description:

 Updated puppet packages fix remote code execution vulnerability
 
 When making REST api calls, the puppet master takes YAML from
 an untrusted client, deserializes it, and then calls methods on
 the resulting object. A YAML payload can be crafted to cause the
 deserialization to construct an instance of any class available in
 the ruby process, which allows an attacker to execute code contained
 in the payload (CVE-2013-3567).
