Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3578) mapred.system.dir should be accessible only to hadoop daemons
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2008 08:49:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3578?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12606293#action_12606293

Hemanth Yamijala commented on HADOOP-3578:

bq. The names of the job directories start with job_. hadoop dfs -rmr job_* would remove them,
right ? I tried it on my directories, and wild card removal of directories seems to be working.
So, I am assuming it will work even for the mapred system directories children.

Sorry, I take that back. It probably worked because it is my directories. I don't think dfs
-rmr job_* will delete directories not owned by me, if there are no execute permissions on
the parent.

> Currently the jobclient accesses the {{mapred.system.dir}} to add job details. Hence
the {{mapred.system.dir}} has the permissions of {{rwx-wx-wx}}. This could be a security loophole
where the job files might get overwritten/tampered after the job submission.
