Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12577) Bump up commons-collections version to 3.2.2 to address a security flaw
Date Thu, 19 Nov 2015 23:17:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12577?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15014713#comment-15014713

Mike Yoder commented on HADOOP-12577:
-------------------------------------

You may well be correct that there is no vulnerability in hadoop - but in some sense that
almost does not matter. There are many corporate security departments that are going to raise
red flags about the presence of this library in the classpath. Explaining to them why you
think you're not vulnerable may or may not work, and it's hard to prove a negative. In my
experience it's easiest to just do the upgrade.
