openSUSE Security Update : docker (openSUSE-SU-2014:1596-1)

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

docker was updated to version 1.3.2 to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- Symbolic and hardlink issues leading to privilege
escalation (CVE-2014-6407).

- Potential container escalation (CVE-2014-6408).

There non-security issues were fixed :

- Fix deadlock in docker ps -f exited=1

- Fix a bug when --volumes-from references a container
that failed to start

- --insecure-registry now accepts CIDR notation such as
10.1.0.0/16

- Private registries whose IPs fall in the 127.0.0.0/8
range do no need the --insecure-registry flag

- Skip the experimental registry v2 API when mirroring is
enabled

- Fixed minor packaging issues.
