Fedora 9 : condor-7.0.4-1.fc9 (2008-7205)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

A flaw was found in a way condor interpreted wild cards in the
authorization lists. Certain authorization lists using wild cards in
DENY rules (such as DENY_WRITE or HOSTDENY_WRITE) that conflict with
with definitions in ALLOW rule could permit authenticated remote users
to submit computation jobs, even when such access should have been
denied.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
