Date Reported:

Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 1008634.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2022-26110.
More information:

Jaime Frey discovered a flaw in HTCondor, a distributed workload management system. An attacker need only have READ-level authorization to a vulnerable daemon using the CLAIMTOBE authentication method. This means they are able to run tools like condor_q or condor_status. Many pools do not restrict who can issue READ-level commands, and CLAIMTOBE is allowed for READ-level commands in the default configuration. Thus, it is likely that an attacker could execute this command remotely from an untrusted network, unless prevented by a firewall or other network-level access controls.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 8.4.11~dfsg.1-1+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your condor packages.
