Overview

MCollective Private Keys Visible In PuppetDB

  • Posted May 11, 2017

  • Assessed Risk Level: Medium

  • CVSS: 6.0

Versions of Puppet Enterprise prior to 2016.4.5 or 2017.2.1 failed to mark MCollective server private keys as sensitive (a feature added in Puppet 4.6), so key values could be logged and stored in PuppetDB. These releases use the sensitive data type to ensure this won’t happen anymore.

This vulnerability was found by an internal audit at Puppet.
