    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in puppet, a centralized
    configuration management system. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2013-4761
    
        The 'resource_type' service (disabled by default) could be used to
        make puppet load arbitrary Ruby code from puppet master's file
        system.
    
    CVE-2013-4956
    
        Modules installed with the Puppet Module Tool might be installed
        with weak permissions, possibly allowing local users to read or
        modify them.
    
    The stable distribution (wheezy) has been updated to version 2.7.33 of
    puppet. This version includes the patches for all the previous DSAs
    related to puppet in wheezy. In this version, the puppet report format
    is now correctly reported as version 3.
    
    It is to be expected that future DSAs for puppet update to a newer,
    bug fix-only, release of the 2.7 branch.
    
    The oldstable distribution (squeeze) has not been updated for this
    advisory: as of this time there is no fix for CVE-2013-4761 and the
    package is not affected by CVE-2013-4956.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.7.23-1~deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your puppet packages.
