Updated puppet and puppet3 package fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 26 Aug 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 2 , 3
CVE: CVE-2013-4761 , CVE-2013-4956

Description

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled the resource_type
service. A local attacker on the master could use this issue to execute
arbitrary Ruby files (CVE-2013-4761).

It was discovered that Puppet incorrectly handled permissions on the
modules it installed. Modules could be installed with the permissions
that existed when they were built, possibly exposing them to a local
attacker (CVE-2013-4956).
