Docker is a service providing container management on Linux.
It was found that the fix for the CVE-2014-5277 issue was incomplete:
the docker client could under certain circumstances erroneously fall
back to HTTP when an HTTPS connection to a registry failed. This could
allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to obtain authentication and image
data from traffic sent from a client to the registry. (CVE-2015-1843)
Red Hat would like to thank Eric Windisch of Docker Inc. for reporting
All docker users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which correct this issue.
