[Pkg-puppet-devel] Bug#679765: puppetmaster - CA prone to MD5 collision attacks

Package: puppetmaster
Version: 2.7.14-1
Severity: grave

The included CA still only displays MD5 fingerprints of certificates.
MD5 is not longer save against collision attacks. So a rogue client is
able to use a collision attack to get a certificate for the puppet
master and overtake the clients.
