    Matt Ezell from Oak Ridge National Labs reported a vulnerability in
    torque, a PBS-derived batch processing queueing system.
    
    A user could submit executable shell commands on the tail of what is
    passed with the -M switch for qsub. This was later passed to a pipe,
    making it possible for these commands to be executed as root on the
    pbs_server.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.8+dfsg-9squeeze3.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.16+dfsg-1+deb7u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.16+dfsg-1.3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your torque packages.
