Subject Re: Sqoop password expose
Date Wed, 07 May 2014 15:43:33 GMT
Hi Santosh,
what logs are you referring to? Sqoop never ever printed out password into it's logs.

There were however few instances where the password was available in the past by exploring
other means, such as:

* Mapreduce job.xml object - this got removed in 1.4.4 via SQOOP-914
* Oozie logs - this can be bypassed by using --password-file option that has been added in
1.4.4 again via SQOOP-914

Don't hesitate and let us know if you see another instance where the password is available!
