CVE-2013-1654

Published: 12 March 2013

Puppet 2.7.x before 2.7.21 and 3.1.x before 3.1.1, and Puppet Enterprise 2.7.x before 2.7.2, does not properly negotiate the SSL protocol between client and master, which allows remote attackers to conduct SSLv2 downgrade attacks against SSLv3 sessions via unspecified vectors.

Status

Package Release Status

Released (2.6.18, 2.7.21, 3.1.1)

Notes

AuthorNote

Upstream no longer supports 0.25.x as found in lucid. The code
is substantially different, rendering a backport of this
security update difficult. Since puppet in Lucid is almost
end-of-life, we aren't planning on backporting the security fix
to it. For Lucid users, we recommend using puppet
2.7.1-1ubuntu3.8~ubuntu10.04.1 currently in lucid-backports.
