org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-common is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. A cluster user may be able to expose private files owned by the user running the MapReduce job history server process. A malicious user can construct a configuration file containing XML directives that reference sensitive files on the MapReduce job history server host.
