Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management slurmctld daemon privilege escalation
|slurm-slurmctld-privilege-escalation (50127)||High Risk|
Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management could allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by the improper dropping of supplemental groups when handling the strigger command by the slurmctld daemon. A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain unauthorized access to restricted files with the supplemental group privileges of the slurmctld daemon.
Upgrade to the latest version of SLURM (1.3.15 or later), available from the SLURM Web site. See References.
