CVE-2016-5195 and the Docker For Mac VM Host


(Fridder) #1

Can we get a threat assessment and a timetable to a patch please?


(Justin Cormack) #2

We are currently expecting to patch around the 25th October.

So far I have only been able to make it panic the kernel on the currently shipping configuration. The exploit is significantly less useful inside a container, as filesystem access remains restricted, but we are still evaluating.

Thank you. Is there a place to track this or is the forum the best place?
