If a user downloads spark-1.3.0.tgz, they will find a README.md with: Please refer to the [Configuration guide] (http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/configuration.html) in the online documentation for an overview on how to configure Spark. Also, because the product is advertised as a "general-purpose cluster computing system," we think that downloaders would typically have some experience in system or network administration, and should be able to recognize whether a trusted network exists for all "internal connections." It's conceivable that the documentation should be expanded to further discuss the risks of the default spark.authenticate value. MITRE is not going to assign a CVE ID for this. It is a judgment call for the upstream vendor. Because the upstream vendor has a process for assigning CVE IDs, we feel it would be simplest and best here to use that process, even if it is often not used in cases of publicly known vulnerabilities. See the security@...che.org address on the http://www.apache.org/security/committers.html page. It's their decision on how to proceed. - -- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.14 (SunOS) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJVMDDEAAoJEKllVAevmvms7TAH/2VS+DAzJk77Z6bIa28/YNXh 3oErKwofEMfK7jOi0bUfglWGXRKRKA8RdyDq4TkCaoskP4buXDg/i411A8zwdoIb pxSO7ocq6LnpxmrMoNdOnU+6c9eEIYK/LbcLAPBXneQNt6XnNc7blTrAJAPM/tWU uApr3UyVNNG6W9SbeGz4tLkEPTbNBInEshpokWTn7n83iID9VvhKFJC6x4wCRb3q paRpxzg7N3AWjm0uSQu3UJRTpKEbyFCFt0rHn7DWVQ2fZlj4K7VXnkCNYzE1ssbZ S8iEhT09SKEg5sqqVN5vpuORfj7deoebnD9pbWTijUPcpXtuz/t7fYqbL+oaJ6Y= =mHRi -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
