Description

This update for salt fixes the following issues :

Security issues fixed :

CVE-2018-15750: Fixed directory traversal vulnerability in salt-api (bsc#1113698).

CVE-2018-15751: Fixed remote authentication bypass in salt-api(netapi) that allows to execute arbitrary commands (bsc#1113699).

Non-security issues fixed: Improved handling of LDAP group id. gid is no longer treated as a string, which could have lead to faulty group creations (bsc#1113784).

Fixed async call to process manager (bsc#1110938).

Fixed OS arch detection when RPM is not installed (bsc#1114197).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
