Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1226) Non-Avro data causes runtime exceptions/errors when sent to Avro IPC port
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2013 17:58:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1226?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13547055#comment-13547055

Brock Noland commented on AVRO-1226:

I am no expert in the AVRO IPC protocol so I maybe speaking out of turn here. However, what
if we changed the IPC protocol so that the first item exchanged between two avro processes
was a magic cookie. This way, if a port scanner/monitor connected to an avro service and sent
it bad data, we could identify this and throw and error like "Client is not speaking avro".

This would be an incompatible change.

> AVRO-1111 put in a stop gap measure to stop Avro from throwing an OOMError when something
like an HTTP request was sent to an AVRO IPC port. The general issue of port scanning/monitoring
causing Avro to throw opaque runtime errors still exists.
