Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-08 11:22:42 UTC
A denial of service flaw was found in the way Condor's policy definition evaluator processed certain policy definitions. If an administrator used an attribute defined on a job in any of the following condor_startd policies (CONTINUE, KILL, PREEMPT, SUSPEND), a remote Condor service user could use this flaw to cause a denial of the condor_startd service by submitting a Condor job that caused certain policy definition to be evaluated to either ERROR or UNDEFINED states.

Workaround:
===========
Check for UNDEFINED & ERROR in the policy configuration.
