Debian: Security update for Puppet

Several security vulnerabilities have been found in Puppet, a centralized configuration management. Authenticated clients could read arbitrary files on the puppet master. Authenticated clients could delete arbitrary files on the puppet master. The report of the most recent Puppet run was stored with world- readable permissions, resulting in information disclosure. Agent hostnames were insufficiently validated.

Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

PHP5 was updated with incremental fixes to the previous update. * CVE-2012-2335: Additional unsafe cgi wrapper scripts are also fixed now. * CVE-2012-2336: Even more commandline option handling is filtered, which could lead to crashes of the php interpreter. * CVE-2012-2386: heap based buffer overflow in php’s phar extension * CVE-2012-2143: The crypt() implementation ignored wide characters, leading to shorter effective password lengths. Note: With this update applied affected passwords will no longer work and need to be set again.
