How to fix?

Upgrade org.apache.ranger:ranger to version 0.5.1 or higher.

Overview

org.apache.ranger:ranger is a framework to enable, monitor and manage comprehensive data security across the Hadoop platform.

The Admin UI in Apache Ranger before 0.5.1 does not properly handle authentication requests that lack a password, which allows remote attackers to bypass authentication by leveraging knowledge of a valid username.
