Description

Issue Overview:

It was discovered that runC allowed additional container processes via runc exec to be ptraced by the pid 1 of the container. This allows the main processes of the container, if running as root, to gain access to file descriptors of these new processes during the initialization, which can lead to container escapes or modification of runC state before the process is fully placed inside the container.

Affected Packages:

docker

Issue Correction:
Run yum update docker to update your system.
