network:cluster/slurm, not in the distribution

The _prolog_error function in slurmd/req.c in Slurm before 15.08.13, 16.x
16.05.7, and 17.x before 17.02.0-pre4 has a vulnerability in how the slurmd
daemon informs users of a Prolog failure on a compute node. That vulnerability
could allow a user to assume control of an arbitrary file on the system. Any
exploitation of this is dependent on the user being able to cause or anticipate
the failure (non-zero return code) of a Prolog script that their job would run
on. This issue affects all Slurm versions from 0.6.0 (September 2005) to
present. Workarounds to prevent exploitation of this are to either disable your
Prolog script, or modify it such that it always returns 0 ("success") and
it to set the node as down using scontrol instead of relying on the slurmd to
handle that automatically. If you do not have a Prolog set you are unaffected
this issue.
