CVE-2017-2299 - Possible TLS trust misconfiguration in puppetlabs-apache

  • Posted September 13, 2017
  • Assessed Risk Level: High
  • CVSS: 7.5

Versions of the puppetlabs-apache module prior to 1.11.1 and 2.1.0 make it very easy to accidentally misconfigure TLS trust. If you specify the ssl_ca parameter but do not specify the ssl_certs_dir parameter, a default will be provided for the ssl_certs_dir that will trust certificates from any of the system-trusted certificate authorities. This did not affect FreeBSD.


Affected Software Versions:

  • puppetlabs-apache 0.7.0 - 1.11.0
  • puppetlabs-apache 2.x prior to 2.1.0

Resolved in:

  • puppetlabs-apache 1.11.1
  • puppetlabs-apache 2.1.0
