IBM SP2 sdrd Vulnerability

There is a vulnerability in the System Data Repository (SDR) subsystem. The SDR subsystem is used in IBM SP multi-machine parallel processing environments typically associated with Super Computing. The SDR is deisgned to allow multiple machines to share configuration and operational information. However, proper authentication is not in place in the SDR daemon 'sdrd', this allows un-authenticated users to arbitrarily pull any file off SDR hosts.
