Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in containerd, the worst of
which could result in privilege escalation.

Background
==========

Containerd is a daemon with an API and a command line client, to manage
containers on one machine. It uses runC to run containers according to
the OCI specification.

Affected packages
=================

     -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
   1  app-emulation/containerd
                                   < 1.4.4                    >= 1.4.4

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

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in containerd. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A local attacker, able to run a malicious container in the same network
namespace as the shim, could possibly escalate privileges. Furthermore,
an attacker could disclose sensitive information.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All containerd users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emulation/containerd-1.4.4"
