Package        : puppet
Vulnerability  : regression
Debian-specific: no
Debian Bug     : 734444

The fix for CVE-2013-4969 contained a regression affecting the default
file mode if none is specified on a file resource.

The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected by this regression.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7.23-1~deb7u3.

For the testing distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.4.2-1.

For reference, the original advisory text follows.

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 3.4.1-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.4.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your puppet packages.
