The problems have been fixed upstream in version 2016.11.2.
- CVE-2017-5192 (arbitrary code execution)
The `LocalClient.cmd_batch()` method client does not accept
`external_auth` credentials and so access to it from salt-api has been
removed for now. This vulnerability allows code execution for already-
authenticated users and is only in effect when running salt-api as the
- CVE-2017-5200 (arbitrary command execution)
Salt-api allows arbitrary command execution on a salt-master via Salt's
ssh_client. Users of Salt-API and salt-ssh could execute a command on
the salt master via a hole when both systems were enabled.
A remote attacker is able to execute arbitrary commands on a salt
master when salt is not configured properly. In addition, an
authenticated attacker is able to execute arbitrary code on the salt
stack if salt-api is run as root.
