I. Overview

Apache Druid has officially released the latest version 0.20.2 and disclosed a remote code execution vulnerability (CVE-2021-26919) that affects versions earlier than Apache Druid 0.20.2. The MySQL JDBC driver supports certain properties, which, if left unmitigated, can allow attackers to execute arbitrary code from a hacker-controlled malicious MySQL server within Druid server processes.

Apache Druid is an open-source distributed data storage system. Druid aims to quickly obtain a large amount of event data and provide low-latency query based on the data.
