Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2079) The warehouse directory shouldn't be 777'ed
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2011 19:28:06 GMT


Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-2079:

Ok thanks that clears it up. This only effects those using hive-server and fat client is exempt.
This should not be very difficult. Hive always works in side effect files and then does moves
as the last step. So your technique to do elsewhere and then copy in and chown makes sense.

> The warehouse directory is created with a permissions of 777. This is to allow any user
to successfully create database/table directories there. The security issue is that anyone
can delete any directory in the warehouse. We should fix this hole.
