Description

It was discovered that Puppet agents incorrectly handled certain kick connections in a non-default configuration. An attacker on an authenticated client could use this issue to possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-1653)

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled certain catalog requests. An attacker on an authenticated client could use this issue to possibly execute arbitrary code on the master. (CVE-2013-1640)

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled certain client requests. An attacker on an authenticated client could use this issue to possibly perform unauthorized actions. (CVE-2013-1652)

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled certain SSL connections. An attacker could use this issue to possibly downgrade connections to SSLv2. (CVE-2013-1654)

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled serialized attributes. An attacker on an authenticated client could use this issue to possibly cause a denial of service, or execute arbitrary. (CVE-2013-1655)

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled submitted reports. An attacker on an authenticated node could use this issue to possibly submit a report for any other node. (CVE-2013-2275).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding 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.
