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

high Nessus Plugin ID 33883
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 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.

Solution

Update the affected condor package.
