Description

- An issue was discovered in SchedMD Slurm 22.05.x, 23.02.x, and 23.11.x. There is Improper Enforcement of Message Integrity During Transmission in a Communication Channel.

- An issue was discovered in SchedMD Slurm 22.05.x, 23.02.x, and 23.11.x. Because of a double free, attackers can cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. The fixed versions are 22.05.11, 23.02.7, and 23.11.1. (CVE-2023-49937)

- An issue was discovered in SchedMD Slurm 22.05.x and 23.02.x.
