CVE-2012-5197 condor: multiple unspecified vulnerabilities (likely a duplicate of CVE-2012-3490)
Last modified: 2015-08-19 05:18:31 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2012-5197 to
the following vulnerability:
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Condor 7.6.x before 7.6.10 and
7.8.x before 7.8.4 have unknown impact and attack vectors related to
"error checking of system calls."
These issues were noted in the release notes to have no security impact:
* Security Item: Although not user-visible, there were updates to the code to improve error checking of system calls, removing some potential security threats. None were known to be exploitable.
We have been unable to confirm which exact flaws these are with upstream, however we believe this may be CVE-2012-3490 (which was not noted in the release notes but was corrected upstream, see bug #848212).
Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of condor as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG as it does not include the vulnerable code (VMware support is not compiled in).
