Description Jason Shepherd 2018-04-06 00:09:51 UTC
When using kubectl to cp files to a pod, if the container returns a malformed tarfile with paths like, '/some/remote/dir/../../../../tmp/foo' kubectl writes this to /tmp/foo instead of /some/local/dir/tmp/foo.

Comment 6 Cedric Buissart 2018-04-12 07:54:02 UTC

Kubernetes support is moving from Red Hat Enterprise Linux to OpenShift Container Platform.  Kubernetes and its dependencies will no longer be updated through the Extras channel. Instead, the Red Hat customers are advised to use Red Hat's supported Kubernetes-based products such as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Can we get a confirmation on the status of this CVE.
https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-1002100 state is "will not fix"

We have a customer is asking for the status of this CVE:

Problem Statement	CVE-2018-1002100 status for kubernetes
What problem/issue/behavior are you having trouble with?  What do you expect to see?

https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-1002100 states that the kubernetes package is affected (and won't be fixed) in OpenShift 3 without any mention of the minor version. Please confirm if the kubernetes package in 3.11 is affected or not and which version contains the fix, if any. If it's still affected, we'd like to request a fix backport.

The linked page https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-1002100 has been refreshed to clarify that OpenShift Container Platform 3.9 received a fix (RHBA-2018:1796), and that 3.10 and newer are not affected.

The "will not fix" comment is for the version of kubernetes that shipped in RHEL 7 Extras.
