Subject CVE-2016-3083: Apache Hive SSL vulnerability bug disclosure
Date Wed, 24 May 2017 22:56:38 GMT
Severity: Important

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Apache Hive 0.13.x
Apache Hive 0.14.x
Apache Hive 1.0.0 - 1.0.1
Apache Hive 1.1.0 - 1.1.1
Apache Hive 1.2.0 - 1.2.1
Apache Hive 2.0.0


Apache Hive (JDBC + HiveServer2) implements SSL for plain TCP and HTTP connections (it supports
both transport modes). While validating the server's certificate during the connection setup,
the client doesn't seem to be verifying the common name attribute of the certificate. In this
way, if a JDBC client sends an SSL request to server, and the server responds with
a valid certificate (certified by CA) but issued to, the client will accept that as
a valid certificate and the SSL handshake will go through.


Upgrade to Apache Hive 1.2.2 for 1.x release line, or to Apache Hive 2.0.1 or later for 2.0.x
release line, or to Apache Hive 2.1.0 and later for 2.1.x release line.
