UNICOS Network Queuing System (NQS) Local Format String
Local / Remote,
Loss of Integrity
Unicos' Network Queuing System (NQS), part of the Network Queuing Environment (NQE), contains a flaw that allows any local user gain root privileges. The issue is due to a format string vulnerability in the NQS Daemon that incorrectly processes batch files with malcrafted names. When the name is passed to the NQS daemon via the "qsub" utility, the vulnerable function can be exploited to gain elevated privileges.
Currently, there are no known upgrades or patches to correct this issue. It is possible to correct the flaw by implementing the following workaround: Uninstall the vulnerable package.
