How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.hive:hive-service to version 1.0.1, 1.1.1 or higher.


org.apache.hive:hive-service is a package for reading, writing, and managing large datasets residing in distributed storage using SQL.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Authentication. The LDAP implementation in HiveServer2 mishandles simple unauthenticated and anonymous bind configurations, which allows remote attackers to bypass authentication via a crafted LDAP request.
