Name        : condor
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 7.0.4
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/
Summary     : Condor: High Throughput Computing
Description :
Condor is a specialized workload management system for
compute-intensive jobs. Like other full-featured batch systems, Condor
provides a job queueing mechanism, scheduling policy, priority scheme,
resource monitoring, and resource management. Users submit their
serial or parallel jobs to Condor, Condor places them into a queue,
chooses when and where to run the jobs based upon a policy, carefully
monitors their progress, and ultimately informs the user upon
completion.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

A flaw was found in a way condor interpreted wild cards in the authorization
lists. Certain authorization lists using wild cards in DENY rules (such as
DENY_WRITE or HOSTDENY_WRITE) that conflict with with definitions in ALLOW rule
could permit authenticated remote users to submit computation jobs, even when
such access should have been denied.
