    It was discovered that puppet, a centralized configuration management
    system, did not correctly handle YAML payloads. A remote attacker could
    use a specially-crafted payload to execute arbitrary code on the puppet
    master.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed in
    version 2.6.2-5+squeeze8.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.7.18-5.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your puppet packages.
