You can run the attack library for OSX or Linux from an edge node or from outside the cluster.

I ran against mine from my OSX laptop against my cluster that I had network access to.

You should try to scan from inside your network, from an edge node and from a remote site on the Internet.

You will need Python 2.7 or Python 3.x installed first.

git clone 
pip install requests lxml

You may need root or sudo access to install on your machine.

One of the scanners hits the WebHDFS link that you may have seen a warning about.

python timscluster

To see how available your Hadoop configurations are available, you can use Hadoop Snooper. This is under: Tools\ Techniques\ and\ Procedures \ Getting\ the\ target\ environment\ configuration

python timscluster -o test
Specified destination path does not exist, do you want to create it ? [y/N]y
[+] Creating configuration directory
[+] core-site.xml successfully created
[+] mapred-site.xml successfully created
[+] yarn-site.xml successfully created

This downloads all those configuration files to a directory named test.

These were not the full configuration files, but they pointed to correct internal servers and give an attacker more information.

Another scan worth running is sqlmap. This tool will let you check various SQL tools in the system. SQLMap requires Python 2.6 or 2.7.
