This affects Torque 2.5.8 and is fixed n Torque 2.5.9. Torque 2.5.9 was released on Nov 5, 2011 (http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/resources/downloads/torque/) ------------------- 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 necessary. 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. -- -- Kurt Seifried / Red Hat Security Response Team
