How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.hive:hive-exec to version 0.13.1 or higher.


org.apache.hive:hive-exec 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 Access Control. When in SQL standards based authorization mode, the package does not properly check the file permissions for (1) import and (2) export statements, which allows remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information via a crafted URI.
