Apache Hadoop announced CVE-2017-7669 as a security vulnerability.

In Apache Hadoop 2.8.0, 3.0.0-alpha1, and 3.0.0-alpha2, the LinuxContainerExecutor runs docker commands as root with insufficient input validation. When the docker feature is enabled, authenticated users can run commands as root.

As the most recent CDH versions use Hadoop 2.6 or below versions, CDH does not contain this vulnerability.
