Description Martin Prpič 2015-12-23 04:14:26 EST
The following flaw was reported in Apache Hive:

Users who use LDAP authentication mode in HiveServer2 and also have LDAP configured to allow simple unauthenticated or anonymous bind.

LDAP services are sometimes configured to allow simple unauthenticated binds. When HiveServer2 is configured to use LDAP authentication mode (hive.server2.authentication configuration parameter is set to LDAP), with such LDAP configurations, it can allow users without proper credentials to get authenticated.
