Fedora 16 : torque-3.0.3-2.fc16 (2011-16128)

High Nessus Plugin ID 57001


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This torque update corrects a security vulnerability whereby a user connecting to the torque pbs_server could impersonate another user present within the torque batch system.

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.
