Remus Rusanu created YARN-2552:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Windows Secure Container Executor: the privileged file operations of
hadoopwinutilsvc should be constrained to localdirs only
                 Key: YARN-2552
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2552
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: nodemanager
            Reporter: Remus Rusanu
            Assignee: Remus Rusanu


YARN-2458 added file manipulation operations executed in an elevated context by hadoopwinutilsvc.
W/o any constraint, the NM (or a hijacker that takes over the NM) can manipulate arbitrary
OS files under highest possible privileges, an easy elevation attack vector. The service should
only allow operations on files/directories that are under the configured NM localdirs. It
should read this value from wsce-site.xml, as the yarn-site.xml cannot be trusted, being writable
by Hadoop admins (YARN-2551 ensures wsce-site.xml is only writable by system Administrators,
not Hadoop admins).
