From Bleeping Computer at Linux kernel bug can let hackers escape Kubernetes containers:

A vulnerability affecting Linux kernel and tracked as CVE-2022-0185 can be used to escape containers in Kubernetes, giving access to resources on the host system.



Security researchers warn that exploiting this security issue is easier and more promising than initially estimated, and that patching is an urgent matter since the exploit code will soon become public.

Container breakouts are a special kind of cyber-attacks that can pave the way to deeper infiltration and lateral movement on the compromised network
