Description

Kubernetes allows orchestration and control of Docker containers as used in OpenShift Enterprise 3.

Kubernetes fails to validate object name types before passing the data to etcd. As the etcd service generates keys based on the object name type this can lead to a directory path traversal. (CVE-2015-5305)

Red Hat would like to thank Jordan Liggitt for discovering and reporting this issue.
