    Package        : condor
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8126
    Debian Bug     : 775276
    
    Florian Weimer, of Red Hat Product Security, discovered an issue in
    condor, a distributed workload management system. Upon job completion,
    it can optionally notify a user by sending an email; the mailx
    invocation used in that process allowed for any authenticated user
    able to submit jobs, to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
    the condor user.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 7.8.2~dfsg.1-1+deb7u3.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
    8.2.3~dfsg.1-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your condor packages.
