openSUSE Security Update : docker / docker-runc / containerd / etc (openSUSE-2018-152)

This script is Copyright (C) 2018 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update for docker, docker-runc, containerd,
golang-github-docker-libnetwork fixes several issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2017-16539: The DefaultLinuxSpec function in
oci/defaults.go docker did not block /proc/scsi
pathnames, which allowed attackers to trigger data loss
(when certain older Linux kernels are used) by
leveraging Docker container access to write a 'scsi
remove-single-device' line to /proc/scsi/scsi, aka SCSI
MICDROP (bnc#1066801)

- CVE-2017-14992: Lack of content verification in docker
allowed a remote attacker to cause a Denial of Service
via a crafted image layer payload, aka gzip bombing.

These non-security issues were fixed :

- bsc#1059011: The systemd service helper script used a
timeout of 60 seconds to start the daemon, which is
insufficient in cases where the daemon takes longer to
start. Instead, set the service type from 'simple' to
'notify' and remove the now superfluous helper script.

- bsc#1057743: New requirement with new version of

- bsc#1032287: Missing docker systemd configuration.

- bsc#1057743: New 'symbol' for libnetwork requirement.

- bsc#1057743: Update secrets patch to handle 'old'
containers that have orphaned secret data no longer
available on the host.

- bsc#1055676: Update patches to correctly handle volumes
and mounts when Docker is running with user namespaces

- bsc#1045628:: Add patch to make the dm storage driver
remove a container's rootfs mountpoint before attempting
to do libdm operations on it. This helps avoid
complications when live mounts will leak into

- bsc#1069758: Upgrade Docker to v17.09.1_ce (and obsolete

- bsc#1021227: bsc#1029320 bsc#1058173 -- Enable docker
devicemapper support for deferred removal/deletion
within Containers module.

- bsc#1046024: Correct interaction between Docker and
SuSEFirewall2, to avoid breaking Docker networking after

- bsc#1048046: Build with -buildmode=pie to make all
binaries PIC.

- bsc#1072798: Remove dependency on obsolete bridge-utils.

- bsc#1064926: Set --start-timeout=2m by default to match

- bsc#1065109, bsc#1053532: Use the upstream makefile so
that Docker can get the commit ID in `docker info`.

Please note that the 'docker-runc' package is just a rename of the old
'runc' package to match that we now ship the Docker fork of runc. This
update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
