Package        : lxc
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-1335
Debian Bug     : 800471

Roman Fiedler discovered a directory traversal flaw in LXC, the Linux
Containers userspace tools. A local attacker with access to a LXC
container could exploit this flaw to run programs inside the container
that are not confined by AppArmor or expose unintended files in the host
to the container.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.0.6-6+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your lxc packages.
