We'd like to announce the fixing of CVE-2013-4495. This security hole has
to do with users submitting executable bash commands on the tail of what is
passed with the -M switch for qsub. This was later passed to a pipe, making
it possible for these commands to executed. This has been resolved with the
release of 4.2.6, and we recommend patching pbs_server or upgrading

For those not able to upgrade, here are the relevant changesets:
4.1: 2aad72c3d2ac612ecbb66828ac6ed5ab51eff5f3
2.5: 8246d96
2.4: attached to this email

Please contact me or reply to this email with any questions.
