==============================================================
[CVE-2016-9962] Insecure opening of file-descriptor allows privilege
escalation

==============================================================

RunC allowed additional container processes via `runc exec` to be ptraced
by the pid 1 of the container. This allows the main processes of the
container, if running as root, to gain access to file-descriptors of these
new processes during the initialization and can lead to container escapes
or modification of runC state before the process is fully placed inside the
container

from Docker.
