Description

In Docker 19.03.x before 19.03.1 linked against the GNU C Library (aka glibc), code injection can occur when the nsswitch facility dynamically loads a library inside a chroot that contains the contents of the container.

Solution(s)

  • docker-ee-upgrade-17_06_3
  • docker-ee-upgrade-18_03_3
  • docker-ee-upgrade-19_03_1

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
