"It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled the non-default
'certdnsnames' option when generating certificates. If this setting
was added to puppet.conf, the puppet master's DNS alt names were
added to the X.509 Subject Alternative Name field of all certificates,
not just the puppet master's certificate. An attacker that has an
incorrect agent certificate in his possession can use it to
impersonate the puppet master in a man-in-the-middle attack.

description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues."
