Apache Impala CVE-2019-10084 Authorization Bypass Vulnerability

Date Discovered:
November 04, 2019
Apache Impla is prone to a authorization-bypass vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue to bypass certain security restrictions and perform unauthorized actions or gain elevated privileges; this may aid in launching further attacks. Apache Impala versions 2.7.0 through 3.2.0 are vulnerable.
Technologies Affected
  • Apache Impala 2.7.0
  • Apache Impala 2.8.0
  • Apache Impala 2.9.0
  • Apache Impala 3.0
  • Apache Impala 3.0.1
  • Apache Impala 3.1.0
  • Apache Impala 3.2.0
  • Block external access at the network boundary, unless external parties require service.
    If possible, block external access to the server hosting the vulnerable software. Permit access for trusted or internal networks and computers only.
  • Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.
    Running server processes with minimal privileges and within a restricted environment using facilities such as chroot or jail may limit the consequences of successful attacks.
  • Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.
    Deploy NIDS to monitor network traffic for signs of anomalous or suspicious activity such as unexplained incoming and outgoing traffic. This may indicate exploit attempts or activity that results from successful exploits.
