CVE-2016-9962

Priority
Medium
Description
RunC allowed additional container processes via 'runc exec' to be ptraced
by the pid 1 of the container. This allows the main processes of the
container, if running as root, to gain access to file-descriptors of these
new processes during the initialization and can lead to container escapes
or modification of runC state before the process is fully placed inside the
container.
