[slackware-security]  lxc (SSA:2019-043-01)

New lxc packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/lxc-2.0.9_d3a03247-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue where a malicious privileged container
  could overwrite the host binary and thus gain root-level code execution on
  the host. As the LXC project considers privileged containers to be unsafe
  no CVE has been assigned for this issue for LXC. To prevent this attack,
  LXC has been patched to create a temporary copy of the calling binary
  itself when it starts or attaches to containers. To do this LXC creates an
  anonymous, in-memory file using the memfd_create() system call and copies
  itself into the temporary in-memory file, which is then sealed to prevent
  further modifications. LXC then executes this sealed, in-memory file
  instead of the original on-disk binary.
  For more information, see:

  (* Security fix *)
