2 issues skipped by the security teams:
- CVE-2017-2292: Versions of MCollective prior to 2.10.4 deserialized YAML from agents without calling safe_load, allowing the potential for arbitrary code execution on the server. The fix for this is to call YAML.safe_load on input. This has been tested in all Puppet-supplied MCollective plugins, but there is a chance that third-party plugins could rely on this insecure behavior.
- CVE-2016-2788: MCollective 2.7.0 and 2.8.x before 2.8.9, as used in Puppet Enterprise, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to the mco ping command.
