Overview

org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-mapreduce-client-app is a software framework for distributed processing of large data sets on compute clusters of commodity hardware.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. It encrypts intermediate data generated by a MapReduce job and stores it along with the encryption key in a credentials file on disk when the Intermediate data encryption feature is enabled, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading the file.
