Load Sharing Facility eauth component allows code execution
|lsf-eauth-execute-code (15282)||High Risk|
Platform Computing's Load Sharing Facility (LSF) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a vulnerability in eauth. eauth controls authentication within LSF. A local or remote attacker from within a LSF cluster, can log into LSF with a specially-crafted string to cause eauth to fail, allowing the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system with root privileges.
