Package : torque CVE ID : CVE-2014-3684 Debian Bug : 763922

Chad Vizino reported a vulnerability in torque, a PBS-derived batch processing queueing system. A non-root user could exploit the flaw in the tm_adopt() library call to kill any process, including root-owned ones on any node in a job.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.16+dfsg-1+deb7u4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.16+dfsg-1.5.

We recommend that you upgrade your torque packages.
