Description Vincent Danen 2012-08-14 18:35:38 EDT
Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product Security Team discovered that the ability to abort a job in Condor only required WRITE authorization, instead of a combination of WRITE authorization and job ownership. This could allow an authenticated attacker to bypass intended restrictions and abort any idle job on the system.
