    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Puppet, a centralized
    configuration management tool.
    
    CVE-2012-1053
    	Puppet runs execs with an unintended group privileges,
    	potentially leading to privilege escalation.
    
    CVE-2012-1054
    	The k5login type writes to untrusted locations,
    	enabling local users to escalate their privileges
    	if the k5login type is used.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2.6.2-5+squeeze4.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2.7.11-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your puppet packages.
