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

High Nessus Plugin ID 79819


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


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

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

- Skip the experimental registry v2 API when mirroring is enabled

- Fixed minor packaging issues.


Update the affected docker packages.
