Rancher Server - Docker Exploit
Utilizing Rancher Server, an attacker can create a docker container with the '/' path mounted with read/write permissions on the host server that is running the docker container. As the docker container executes command as uid 0 it is honored by the host operating system allowing the attacker to edit/create files owed by root. This exploit abuses this to creates a cron job in the '/etc/cron.d/' path of the host server. The Docker image should exist on the target system or be a valid image from hub.docker.com. Use `check` with verbose mode to get a list of exploitable Rancher Hosts managed by the target system.
