Docker Security Update: CVE-2019-5736 and Container Security Best Practices

On Monday, February 11, Docker released an update to fix a privilege escalation vulnerability (CVE-2019-5736) in runC, the Open Container Initiative (OCI) runtime specification used in Docker Engine and containerd. This vulnerability makes it possible for a malicious actor that has created a specially-crafted container image to gain administrative privileges on the host. Docker engineering worked with runC maintainers on the OCI to issue a patch for this vulnerability. Docker recommends immediately applying the update to avoid any potential security threats. For Docker Engine-Community, this means updating to 18.09.2 or 18.06.2. For Docker Engine- Enterprise, this means updating to 18.09.2, 18.03.1-ee-6, or 17.06.2-ee-19. Read the release notes before applying the update due to specific instructions for Ubuntu and RHEL operating systems. For Docker Desktop, users should download the update for Mac or Windows. Summary of the Docker Engine versions that address the vulnerability:   Docker Engine Continue reading…

5 Ways to Beat the Clock on Windows Server 2008 End of Support

In just over one year, Microsoft support for Windows Server 2008 will come to an end. Without the proper planning in place, the ripple effects may impact your business. The cost of maintenance will skyrocket, while security and compliance risks will increase without regular patches. So, how can companies beat the clock? The short answer is enterprise container platforms can provide a fast and simple way to transform expensive and difficult-to-maintain applications into efficient, secure and portable applications ready for modern infrastructure – whether current Windows Server releases (such as WS 2016 or later) and/or into the cloud. Taking this approach saves a significant amount of money and improves security and performance across the application lifecycle. We are already seeing immediate demand from customers in modernizing their existing Windows Server applications in preparation for the end of support in January Continue reading…

Top 5 Blog Post 2018: Simplifying Kubernetes with Docker Compose and Friends

All this week we’ve been bringing you the top 5 blog posts for 2018 –coming in at #1 is our post on open sourcing our Docker Compose on Kubernetes capability. This new capability enables you to simplify the Kubernetes experience.

Why do I need Compose if I already have Kubernetes? The Kubernetes API is really quite large. There are more than 50 first-class objects in the latest release, from Pods and Deployments to ValidatingWebhookConfiguration and ResourceQuota. This can lead to a verbosity in configuration, which then needs to be managed by Continue reading…
