./sysutils/salt, Remote execution and configuration management system

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2015.8.5nb3, Package name: salt-2015.8.5nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Salt is a distributed remote execution system used to execute commands
and query data. It was developed in order to bring the best solutions
found in the world of remote execution together and make them better,
faster and more malleable. Salt accomplishes this via its ability to
handle larger loads of information, and not just dozens, but hundreds,
or even thousands of individual servers. It handles them quickly and
through a simple yet manageable interface.

Log message:
Avoid a crash on NetBSD when not every minion is present

From the pull request pending, #31320:

  On NetBSD, Salt currently defaults to using lsof(8) to determine which
  minions are connected. It is however not always available, and even
  then quite unreliable. I found that just like on FreeBSD, sockstat(1)
  is a much safer alternative. Unfortunately its output is not exactly
  the same on NetBSD, where the port delimiter is a dot character
  instead. As a consequence I have decided to duplicate the relevant
  function for NetBSD; let me know if I should try to re-use the code
  supporting FreeBSD instead.

Log message:
Update to 2015.8.5, from PR#50779 addresses CVE-2016-1866

Salt 2015.8.5 is identical to the 2015.8.4 release with the addition of a fix
for issue 30820, fixed by PR #30833.

CVE-2016-1866: Improper handling of clear messages on the minion, which could
result in executing commands not sent by the master.

This issue affects only the 2015.8.x releases of Salt. In order for an attacker
to use this attack vector, they would have to execute a successful attack on an
existing TCP connection between minion and master on the pub port. It does not
allow an external attacker to obtain the shared secret or decrypt any encrypted
traffic between minion and master.

We recommend everyone upgrade to 2015.8.4 as soon as possible.

PR #28994: timcharper Salt S3 module has learned how to assume IAM roles

Added option mock=True for state.sls and state.highstate. This allows the salt
state compiler to process sls data in a state run without actually calling the
state functions, thus providing feedback on the validity of the arguments used
for the functions beyond the preprocessing validation provided by state.show_sls
(issue 30118 and issue 30189).

Security Fix

CVE-2015-8034: Saving state.sls cache data to disk with insecure permissions

This affects users of the state.sls function. The state run cache
on the minion was being created with incorrect permissions. This
file could potentially contain sensitive data that was inserted
via jinja into the state SLS files. The permissions for this file
are now being set correctly. Thanks to @zmalone for bringing this
issue to our attention.
