Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2011-8072
2011-06-10 12:41:54
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : torque
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 3.0.1
Release     : 4.fc15
URL         : http://www.clusterresources.com/products/torque/
Summary     : Tera-scale Open-source Resource and QUEue manager
Description :
TORQUE (Tera-scale Open-source Resource and QUEue manager) is a resource
manager providing control over batch jobs and distributed compute nodes.
TORQUE is based on OpenPBS version 2.3.12 and incorporates scalability,
fault tolerance, and feature extension patches provided by USC, NCSA, OSC,
the U.S. Dept of Energy, Sandia, PNNL, U of Buffalo, TeraGrid, and many
other leading edge HPC organizations.

This package holds just a few shared files and directories.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update fixes a buffer overflow that could allow for remote arbitrary code execution by a torque service. Credit to Bartlomiej Balcerek - CVE-2011-2193.

Warning: Packages previous to torque-3.0.1-4.fc15 within Fedora 15 contained the empty file /var/lib/torque/server_priv/nodes . This file is a listing of the nodes within your torque cluster and as such it should survive intact with upgrades. This file has now been removed from the package with torque-3.0.1-4.fc15 but it is essential that you backup and restore this file before and then after installing  torque-3.0.1-4.fc15.
