CVE-2023-26031 is a vulnerability that affects Apache Hadoop versions 3.3.1 to 3.3.4 on Linux. It allows a local user to gain root privileges, and if the YARN cluster is accepting work from remote authenticated users, it may also permit remote users to gain root privileges. The vulnerability arises due to relative library resolution in the Linux container-executor binary. The remediation for this vulnerability is to apply the patch "YARN-10495" which modifies the library loading path for loading .so files. This vulnerability poses a high danger to organizations as it could lead to unauthorized access and control over the affected systems, potentially compromising their integrity and confidentiality.
