> Linux task-controller determines its own path insecurely
> --------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: MAPREDUCE-1994
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1994
>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: security, task-controller
>    Affects Versions: 0.22.0
>            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
>            Assignee: Todd Lipcon
>            Priority: Critical
> The task-controller uses argv[0] to determine its own path, and then calls stat() on
that. Instead it should stat("/proc/self/exe") directly. This is important since argv[0] can
be spoofed to point to another program and thus either fool the autodetection of HADOOP_HOME
or evade various permissions checks.
