The Cloudera Security Response Team provides a single point of contact for customers and the community to report and provide information on security vulnerabilities in Cloudera products. The team works internally with Cloudera's Engineering and Support organizations as well as the external Apache community to identify, fix, and communicate security vulnerabilities in all Cloudera products.

How to report a vulnerability

Cloudera strongly encourages customers and the community to report security vulnerabilities to our Security Response Team before disclosing them in a public forum. If you are not a current Cloudera customer, please email to report a vulnerability. If you are a Cloudera customer, please create a support case through MyCloudera. Be sure to include details on the version of software you are using and the hardware that it's running on. For any vulnerabilities found on or affiliated websites please include the full URL of the site/page where the vulnerability can be reproduced.

Please refrain from sending us reports about the following vulnerabilities:

  • General low severity issues reported by automated scanners

    • Missing Security Headers (eg. HSTS, CSP, SPF, DMARC)

    • Missing Flags on Cookies

    • SSL issues (weak ciphers/key-size)

    • Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) on unauthenticated forms or forms with no security impact

    • Clickjacking

    • Other general low severity issues reported by automated scanners

  • Rate Limiting (unless it constitutes a significant risk)

  • Attacks requiring MITM or physical access to a user's device

  • Previously known vulnerable libraries without a working Proof of Concept

  • Vulnerabilities only affecting users of outdated or unpatched browsers [Less than 2 stable versions behind the latest released stable version]
