The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 host has one or more packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities that have been acknowledged by the vendor but will not be patched.

  • puppet: incorrect URL decoding (CVE-2016-2785)

  • Versions of Puppet prior to 4.10.1 will deserialize data off the wire (from the agent to the server, in this case) with a attacker-specified format. This could be used to force YAML deserialization in an unsafe manner, which would lead to remote code execution. This change constrains the format of data on the wire to PSON or safely decoded YAML. (CVE-2017-2295)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied on the package manager’s report that the package is installed.
