=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: MRG Grid security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2012:0100-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-5
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0100.html
Issue date:        2012-02-06
Keywords:          MRG, Grid, Management, Enhancements, Security, Bug Fix, 2.1.1
CVE Names:         CVE-2011-4930 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated Grid component packages that fix multiple security issues, multiple
bugs, and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
MRG 2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

MRG Grid Execute Node for RHEL 5 Server v.2 - i386, noarch, x86_64
MRG Grid for RHEL 5 Server v.2 - i386, noarch, x86_64
MRG Management for RHEL 5 Server v.2 - noarch
Red Hat MRG Messaging for RHEL 5 Server v.2 - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

Red Hat Enterprise MRG (Messaging, Realtime, and Grid) is a next-generation
IT infrastructure for enterprise computing. MRG offers increased
performance, reliability, interoperability, and faster computing for
enterprise customers.

MRG Grid provides high-throughput computing and enables enterprises to
achieve higher peak computing capacity as well as improved infrastructure
utilization by leveraging their existing technology to build high
performance grids. MRG Grid provides a job-queueing mechanism, scheduling
policy, and a priority scheme, as well as resource monitoring and resource
management. Users submit their jobs to MRG Grid, where they are placed into
a queue. MRG Grid then chooses when and where to run the jobs based upon a
policy, carefully monitors their progress, and ultimately informs the user
upon completion.

Multiple format string flaws were found in Condor. An authenticated Condor
service user could use these flaws to prevent other jobs from being
scheduled and executed, crash the condor_schedd daemon, or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the "condor" user.
(CVE-2011-4930)

These updated packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 provide enhancements
and bug fixes for the Grid component of MRG. Some select enhancements and
fixes include:

* Addition of -sort option to condor_status

* Customized output from condor_q -run for EC2 jobs

* Enhanced the summary line provided by condor_q

* Improved Collector performance around blocking network calls

* Fixed a memory leak associated with python-psycopg2 hit by cumin-data

Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Refer to
the Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 Technical Notes document for information on
these changes:

https://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_MRG/2/html/Technical_
Notes/index.html

All users of the Grid capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 are advised
to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve the issues and add the
enhancements noted in the Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 Technical Notes.

4. Solution:

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

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
