SUSE SLES12 Security Update : slurm (SUSE-SU-2018:0987-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 120020

Language:

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.

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for slurm fixes the following issues :

- Fix interaction with systemd: systemd expects that a daemonizing process doesn't go away until the PID file with it PID of the daemon has bee written (bsc#1084125).

- Make sure systemd services get restarted only when all packages are in a consistent state, not in the middle of an 'update' transaction (bsc#1088693). Since the %postun scripts that run on update are from the old package they cannot be changed - thus we work around the restart breakage.

- CVE-2018-7033: Fixed security issue in accounting_storage/mysql plugin by always escaping strings within the slurmdbd (bsc#1085240).

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

Solution

To install this SUSE Security Update use the SUSE recommended installation methods like YaST online_update or 'zypper patch'.
