the following CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id was
published for puppet some time ago.

| Puppet 0.24.x before 0.24.9 and 0.25.x before 0.25.2 allows local
| users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the (1)
| /tmp/daemonout, (2) /tmp/puppetdoc.txt, (3) /tmp/puppetdoc.tex, or (4)
| /tmp/puppetdoc.aux temporary file.

Unfortunately the vulnerability described above is not important enough
to get it fixed via regular security update in Debian stable and oldstable.
It does not warrant a DSA.

However it would be nice if this could get fixed via a regular point
Please contact the release team for this.

This is an automatically generated mail, in case you are already working
on an
upgrade this is of course pointless.
