Description Murray McAllister 2014-11-25 00:17:07 UTC
The following flaw has been fixed in Docker 1.3.2:

Docker versions 1.3.0 through 1.3.1 allowed security options to be applied
to images, allowing images to modify the default run profile of containers
executing these images. This vulnerability could allow a malicious image
creator to loosen the restrictions applied to a container’s processes,
potentially facilitating a break-out.

Docker 1.3.2 remedies this vulnerability. Security options applied to
images are no longer consumed by the Docker engine and will be ignored.
Users are advised to upgrade.


Red Hat would like to thank the Docker project for reporting this issue.

This issue did not affect the version of Docker as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

The next current release of Docker is < 1.30 and the next release will be based off of 1.3.2 or greater.
