Date of Resolved Release
Sun Grid Engine (SGE) 5.3 software may be vulnerable ...
Sun Linux systems and Solaris 8 and 9 systems which run Sun Grid Engine (SGE) 5.3 software may be vulnerable to Denial of Service attacks, service interruptions, and in some cases a local or remote unprivileged user may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the OpenSSL process, typically root, due to security vulnerabilities found in OpenSSL.
OpenSSL is an open source toolkit that implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols, as well as a general purpose cryptography library.
There are multiple vulnerabilities in OpenSSL versions prior to 0.9.7c and 0.9.6k, as described in the following CERT Vulnerabilities:

2. Contributing Factors
This issue can occur in the following releases:
Sun Linux Platform
To determine the version of Sun Grid Engine, run the following command:
$ <SGE_ROOT>/bin/<architecture>/sge_commd -V
where <architecture> is either "solaris" or "solaris64" as in the following example:
$ <SGE_ROOT>/bin/solaris64/sge_commd -V SGE 5.3p4
To determine the OpenSSL package version, run the following command:
$ <SGE_ROOT>/utilbin/solaris64/openssl version OpenSSL 0.9.7a Feb 19 200
There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate the above described issues have been exploited.
There is no workaround. Please see the "Resolution" section below.
This issue is addressed in the following releases:
