Correct form of CVE request:

According to Secunia  "The
vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error when using munge
authentication and can be exploited to impersonate other users."

>From changelog: b - Change so user cannot impersonate a different user
when using munge.

This affects Torque 2.5.8 and is fixed n Torque 2.5.9. Torque 2.5.9 was
released on Nov 5, 2011


Ideally then you'd also post a link to the source code change. Depending
on the availability of an upstream advisory/etc. this isn't always

Important note: In future I will not be assigning CVE's for postings of
just the Secunia URL, you need to include more information as mentioned
above so that a) I can research and verify the issue and b) to reduce
the chance of duplicates and c) assign the correct year.

Please use CVE-2011-4925 for this issue.
