Date    : 2021-02-06
CVE-ID  : CVE-2021-21284 CVE-2021-21285

Summary
=======

The package docker before version 1:20.10.3-1 is vulnerable to multiple
issues including denial of service and privilege escalation.

Resolution
==========

Upgrade to 1:20.10.3-1.

# pacman -Syu "docker>=1:20.10.3-1"

The problems have been fixed upstream in version 20.10.3.

Workaround
==========

None.

Description
===========

- CVE-2021-21284 (privilege escalation)

In Docker before versions 9.03.15, 20.10.3 there is a vulnerability
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/"
that cause writing files with extended privileges. Versions 20.10.3 and
19.03.15 contain patches that prevent privilege escalation from
remapped user.

- CVE-2021-21285 (denial of service)

In Docker before versions 9.03.15, 20.10.3 there is a vulnerability in
which pulling an intentionally malformed Docker image manifest crashes
the dockerd daemon. Versions 20.10.3 and 19.03.15 contain patches that
prevent the daemon from crashing.

Impact
======

An attacker could crash the dockerd daemon via a crafted image. An
attacker with root access inside a docker container can escape the
container.
