No, you don't really have to worry. Unfortunately, due to some legacy 
issues, the condor checkpointing library still has the old calls.

The linker just knows that those calls are not ideal, and warns you
whenever it sees them. An attack against a Condor job is pretty
unlikely. (If you disagree and think your job might encounter
malicious users, then I'd take it up with condor-admin@xxxxxxxxxxx)

Otherwise, it's nothing to really worry about.
