NEWS: Linux Bug Allows Kubernetes Container Escape

Container Security has been improving, but many of the benefits of containers come from the very flexibility that limits the security they provide. BluBracket’s VP of Product Casey Bisson gives the details in Container Journal.

“We see that code is now the largest and least-protected threat vector,” he says. “Attackers are targeting upstream components that are unguarded so they can then infiltrate those who use the components. Kubernetes, unfortunately, is a perfect target because of its widespread use. Luckily, the community has even more focus on security in Kubernetes so the capabilities will continue to develop.”
