    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in package salt, a
    configuration management and infrastructure automation software.
    
    CVE-2020-11651
    
        The salt-master process ClearFuncs class does not properly validate
        method calls. This allows a remote user to access some methods
        without authentication. These methods can be used to retrieve user
        tokens from the salt master and/or run arbitrary commands on salt
        minions.
    
    CVE-2020-11652
    
        The salt-master process ClearFuncs class allows access to some
        methods that improperly sanitize paths. These methods allow
        arbitrary directory access to authenticated users.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    2014.1.13+ds-3+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your salt packages.
