SUSE SLES12 Security Update : docker (SUSE-SU-2015:0984-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 83970


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


The Linux container runtime environment Docker was updated to version 1.6.2 to fix several security and non-security issues.

- Security :

- Fix read/write /proc paths. (CVE-2015-3630)

- Prohibit VOLUME /proc and VOLUME /. (CVE-2015-3631)

- Fix opening of file-descriptor 1. (CVE-2015-3627)

- Fix symlink traversal on container respawn allowing local privilege escalation. (CVE-2015-3629)

- Runtime :

- Update Apparmor policy to not allow mounts.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
