Access Required:

authorized HTCondor submitter

This vulnerability requires the attacker to be able to submit a job to a condor_schedd.

Effort Required:

low

Using standard HTCondor binaries, an attacker with knowledge of the nature of this vulnerability and manipulating GSI proxies can cause a denial of service.

Impact/Consequences:

medium

Using a specially crafted proxy, an attacker can cause the condor_schedd to crash, essentially preventing any users from running jobs.

Workaround:

If your site does not use GSI, or if it does use GSI but does not utilize VOMS extensions, you can set "USE_VOMS_ATTRIBUTES = False" in your configuration to avoid the issue entirely.
