Red Hat Enterprise MRG 1.2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red

3. Description:

Condor is a specialized workload management system for compute-intensive
jobs. It provides a job queuing mechanism, scheduling policy, priority
scheme, and resource monitoring and management.

A flaw was found in the way Condor managed jobs. This could allow a user
that is authorized to submit jobs into Condor to queue a job as if it were
submitted by a different local user, potentially leading to unauthorized
access to that user's account. (CVE-2009-4133)

Note: Condor will not run jobs as root; therefore, this flaw cannot lead to
a compromise of the root user account.

All Red Hat Enterprise MRG 1.2 users are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
Condor must be restarted for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.
