> The linux-task-controller executable currently traverses a directory heirarchy and calls
chown/chmod on the files inside. There is a race condition here which can be exploited by
an attacker, causing the task-controller to improprly chown an arbitrary target file (via
a symlink) to the user running a MR job. This can be exploited to escalate to root.
