    Bartlomiej Balcerek discovered several buffer overflows in torque server,
    a PBS-derived batch processing server.  This allows an attacker to crash the
    service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the server via crafted
    job or host names.
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) does not contain torque.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.8+dfsg-9squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.15+dfsg-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.15+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your torque packages.
