Fedora 15 : torque-3.0.1-4.fc15 (2011-8072)

High Nessus Plugin ID 55578


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a buffer overflow that could allow for remote arbitrary code execution by a torque service. Credit to Bartlomiej Balcerek - CVE-2011-2193.

Warning: Packages previous to torque-3.0.1-4.fc15 within Fedora 15 contained the empty file /var/lib/torque/server_priv/nodes . This file is a listing of the nodes within your torque cluster and as such it should survive intact with upgrades. This file has now been removed from the package with torque-3.0.1-4.fc15 but it is essential that you backup and restore this file before and then after installing torque-3.0.1-4.fc15.

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.


Update the affected torque package.
