Escaping Docker Container


(Epic771) #1

0down votefavorite

I have installed a Docker on my Ubuntu machine 16.04.

Is there any way to bypass Docker container to host? (RCE, Privilege Escalation etc…) Which means is there any way to access the host machine inside the docker container.

Below is the command which I am using it to launch the container.

docker run --rm -ti ubuntu:16.04

I am going to give docker containers access in my college for testing purpose. And, I have hosted everything on my personal cloud. Is it possible to compromise the host machine from the container?

Please let me know about this. Before I start giving access in my college I need to make sure about it.

PS: I have configured macvlan and containers cannot talk to each other.
