Subject Re: Coverity Scan (MAPREDUCE-5032)
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 00:57:24 GMT
I strongly recommend that we take this conversation over to the
(committers-only) security@hadoop.apache.org mailing list. In general we
try to follow the Apache recommendations when it comes to addressing
security issues, which involves not publicly disclosing the vulnerability
until there are released version(s) with the issue(s) addressed.

Best,
Aaron
