By the Year

In 2020 there have been 2 vulnerabilities in Docker with an average score of 6.3 out of ten. Last year Docker had 8 security vulnerabilities published. Right now, Docker is on track to have less security vulerabilities in 2020 than it did last year. Last year, the average CVE base score was greater by 1.11

Year Vulnerabilities Average Score
2020 2 6.35

It may take a day or so for new Docker vulnerabilities to show up. Additionally vulnerabilities may be tagged under a different product or component name.

Latest Docker Security Vulnerabilities

An issue was discovered in Docker Engine before 19.03.11

CVE-2020-13401 6 - Medium - June 02, 2020

An issue was discovered in Docker Engine before 19.03.11. An attacker in a container, with the CAP_NET_RAW capability, can craft IPv6 router advertisements, and consequently spoof external IPv6 hosts, obtain sensitive information, or cause a denial of service.

Improper Input Validation

Docker Desktop allows local privilege escalation to NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

CVE-2020-10665 6.7 - Medium - March 18, 2020

Docker Desktop allows local privilege escalation to NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM because it mishandles the collection of diagnostics with Administrator privileges, leading to arbitrary DACL permissions overwrites and arbitrary file writes. This affects Docker Desktop Enterprise before 2.1.0.9, Docker Desktop for Windows Stable before 2.2.0.4, and Docker Desktop for Windows Edge before 2.2.2.0.

Improper Privilege Management

runc through 1.0.0-rc8, as used in Docker through 19.03.2-ce and other products

CVE-2019-16884 7.5 - High - September 25, 2019

runc through 1.0.0-rc8, as used in Docker through 19.03.2-ce and other products, allows AppArmor restriction bypass because libcontainer/rootfs_linux.go incorrectly checks mount targets, and thus a malicious Docker image can mount over a /proc directory.

AuthZ

In Docker before 18.09.4, an attacker who is capable of supplying or manipulating the build path for the "docker build" command

CVE-2019-13139 8.4 - High - August 22, 2019

In Docker before 18.09.4, an attacker who is capable of supplying or manipulating the build path for the "docker build" command would be able to gain command execution. An issue exists in the way "docker build" processes remote git URLs, and results in command injection into the underlying "git clone" command, leading to code execution in the context of the user executing the "docker build" command. This occurs because git ref can be misinterpreted as a flag.

Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in a Command ('Command Injection')

In Docker 19.03.x before 19.03.1 linked against the GNU C Library (aka glibc), code injection can occur when the nsswitch facility dynamically loads a library inside a chroot

CVE-2019-14271 9.8 - Critical - July 29, 2019

In Docker 19.03.x before 19.03.1 linked against the GNU C Library (aka glibc), code injection can occur when the nsswitch facility dynamically loads a library inside a chroot that contains the contents of the container.

Improper Control of Generation of Code ('Code Injection')

docker-credential-helpers before 0.6.3 has a double free in the List functions.

CVE-2019-1020014 5.5 - Medium - July 29, 2019

docker-credential-helpers before 0.6.3 has a double free in the List functions.

Double-free

In Docker CE and EE before 18.09.8 (as well as Docker EE before 17.06.2-ee-23 and 18.x before 18.03.1-ee-10)

CVE-2019-13509 7.5 - High - July 18, 2019

In Docker CE and EE before 18.09.8 (as well as Docker EE before 17.06.2-ee-23 and 18.x before 18.03.1-ee-10), Docker Engine in debug mode may sometimes add secrets to the debug log. This applies to a scenario where docker stack deploy is run to redeploy a stack that includes (non external) secrets. It potentially applies to other API users of the stack API if they resend the secret.

Information Exposure Through Log Files

In Docker through 18.06.1-ce-rc2, the API endpoints behind the 'docker cp' command are vulnerable to a symlink-exchange attack with Directory Traversal, giving attackers arbitrary read-write access to the host filesystem with root privileges

CVE-2018-15664 7.5 - High - May 23, 2019

In Docker through 18.06.1-ce-rc2, the API endpoints behind the 'docker cp' command are vulnerable to a symlink-exchange attack with Directory Traversal, giving attackers arbitrary read-write access to the host filesystem with root privileges, because daemon/archive.go does not do archive operations on a frozen filesystem (or from within a chroot).

Race Condition

runc through 1.0-rc6, as used in Docker before 18.09.2 and other products, allows attackers to overwrite the host runc binary (and consequently obtain host root access) by leveraging the ability to execute a command as root within one of these types of containers: (1) a new container with an attacker-controlled image, or (2) an existing container, to which the attacker previously had write access

CVE-2019-5736 8.6 - High - February 11, 2019

runc through 1.0-rc6, as used in Docker before 18.09.2 and other products, allows attackers to overwrite the host runc binary (and consequently obtain host root access) by leveraging the ability to execute a command as root within one of these types of containers: (1) a new container with an attacker-controlled image, or (2) an existing container, to which the attacker previously had write access, that can be attached with docker exec. This occurs because of file-descriptor mishandling, related to /proc/self/exe.

Containment Errors (Container Errors)

Docker Engine before 18.09

CVE-2018-20699 4.9 - Medium - January 12, 2019

Docker Engine before 18.09 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (dockerd memory consumption) via a large integer in a --cpuset-mems or --cpuset-cpus value, related to daemon/daemon_unix.go, pkg/parsers/parsers.go, and pkg/sysinfo/sysinfo.go.

Uncontrolled Resource Consumption ('Resource Exhaustion')

HandleRequestAsync in Docker for Windows before 18.06.0-ce-rc3-win68 (edge) and before 18.06.0-ce-win72 (stable) deserialized requests over the \\

CVE-2018-15514 8.8 - High - September 01, 2018

HandleRequestAsync in Docker for Windows before 18.06.0-ce-rc3-win68 (edge) and before 18.06.0-ce-win72 (stable) deserialized requests over the \\.\pipe\dockerBackend named pipe without verifying the validity of the deserialized .NET objects. This would allow a malicious user in the "docker-users" group (who may not otherwise have administrator access) to escalate to administrator privileges.

Marshaling, Unmarshaling

The default OCI linux spec in oci/defaults{_linux}.go in Docker/Moby from 1.11 to current does not block /proc/acpi pathnames

CVE-2018-10892 5.3 - Medium - July 06, 2018

The default OCI linux spec in oci/defaults{_linux}.go in Docker/Moby from 1.11 to current does not block /proc/acpi pathnames. The flaw allows an attacker to modify host's hardware like enabling/disabling bluetooth or turning up/down keyboard brightness.
