Debian DLA-2886-1 : slurm-llnl - LTS security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 156773

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The remote Debian 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-2886 advisory.

- SchedMD Slurm 17.11.x, 18.08.0 through 18.08.7, and 19.05.0 allows SQL Injection. (CVE-2019-12838)

- Slurm 19.05.x before 19.05.7 and 20.02.x before 20.02.3, in the rare case where Message Aggregation is enabled, allows Authentication Bypass via an Alternate Path or Channel. A race condition allows a user to launch a process as an arbitrary user. (CVE-2020-12693)

- Slurm before 19.05.8 and 20.x before 20.02.6 has an RPC Buffer Overflow in the PMIx MPI plugin.
(CVE-2020-27745)

- SchedMD Slurm before 20.02.7 and 20.03.x through 20.11.x before 20.11.7 allows remote code execution as SlurmUser because use of a PrologSlurmctld or EpilogSlurmctld script leads to environment mishandling.
(CVE-2021-31215)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade the slurm-llnl packages.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 16.05.9-1+deb9u5.
