Description Clayton Coleman 2020-02-06 18:25:30 UTC
The init collector for node_exporter should have been privileged because dmidecode (used for some detection) requires higher privileges than is given by default. Giving that to the init container does not reduce runtime safety since only the init container will be given it.

Backport to all versions that have the collector.
