Overview

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Privilege Escalation. There is a vulnerability in Docker involving the --userns-remap option in which access to remapped root allows privilege escalation to real root. When using --userns-remap, if the root user in the remapped namespace has access to the host filesystem they can modify files under /var/lib/docker/<remapping> that cause writing files with extended privileges.
