CWE ID 732


CVE-2024-27294 is a vulnerability affecting the dp-golang Puppet module for Go installations prior to version 1.2.7. When Puppet is run as root and the installed package is on macOS, certain files, including the compiler binary, may be installed with incorrect ownership. The user and group specified in the Puppet code are ignored for files within the archive. To remediate this vulnerability, users should update to version 1.2.7 of dp-golang, which will recreate installations if the owner or group of any file or directory does not match the requested owner or group. This vulnerability poses a potential danger to organizations as it could allow unauthorized access or manipulation of critical resources, compromising integrity and potentially leading to further security breaches.
