Description Josh Bressers 2008-09-25 15:28:35 EDT
Any user who can submit a job can cause a buffer overflow in the

condor_qedit 1.0 X 1, for instance, sets attribute X to 1 on job 1.0. The
attribute name X is used to lookup configuration information, which employs
a static 1024 byte buffer. Making the attribute name large enough can
overflow that buffer.

The condor_schedd is a root run service.
