FreeBSD : slurm-wlm -- SQL Injection attacks against SlurmDBD (b3e04661-2a0a-11e8-9e63-3085a9a47796)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 108431


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


SchedMD reports :

Several issues were discovered with incomplete sanitization of user-provided text strings, which could potentially lead to SQL injection attacks against SlurmDBD itself. Such exploits could lead to a loss of accounting data, or escalation of user privileges on the cluster.


Update the affected package.
