Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6898) FileSystem.copyToLocal creates files with 777 permissions
Date Wed, 04 Aug 2010 03:49:16 GMT

on the target file system without passing any permission object. Therefore, the file ends
up getting created locally with 777 permissions, which is dangerous -- even if the caller
then fixes up permissions afterwards, it exposes a window in which an attacker can open the
