Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2008-09-25 15:31:30 EDT
A user with permission to submit jobs can run any program on a pool as any

The job is submitted and the Owner is quickly changed to the victim. The
victim's account will be used to run the job. The job can run any program
and be directed to any machine within the pool.

This flaw cannot be used to execute arbitrary jobs as the root superuser.
