    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.
