Vulnerability in R Programming language

A vulnerability, CVE-2024-27322, in the R programming language that affects the serialization and deserialization process in the R programming language prior to version 4.4.0 is discovered. This vulnerability can be exploited through R Data Serialization (RDS) files or R packages, which are often shared between developers and data scientists. R addresses the vulnerability starting from version 4.4.0. We have installed R 4.4.0 on all clusters and recommend using R/4.4.0. Please limit package use to trusted sources.

OSC has been made aware that our website(www.osc.edu) has been scraped and replicated. As a friendly reminder please pay attention to URL addresses you access and OSC will never reach out asking you directly for username/passwords or to log in on websites outside of my.osc.edu or ondemand.osc.edu.

OSC Classroom Support

CLASSROOM RESOURCES FOR DISTANCE LEARNING If your class has lost or limited access to computer labs, the Ohio Supercomputer Center might be able to help by providing no-cost access to cloud computing resources. Classes and workloads of any size can gain access. OSC's web-browser interface to its substantial Linux computer systems provides novice users with virtual desktops preloaded with applications, such as MATLAB, RStudio, or Jupyter Notebook. As an example, an OSU undergrad statistics class recently used iPads to remotely access RStudio on OSC systems.
