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.

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.
