Docker vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Docker could be made to overwrite files as the administrator.

Software Description:
- docker.io: Linux container runtime


Aleksa Sarai discovered that Docker was vulnerable to a directory traversal
attack. An attacker could use this vulnerability to read and write arbitrary
files on the host filesystem as root.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 19.04:
  docker.io                       18.09.7-0ubuntu1~19.04.4

Ubuntu 18.10:
  docker.io                       18.09.7-0ubuntu1~18.10.3

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  docker.io                       18.09.7-0ubuntu1~18.04.3

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  docker.io                       18.09.7-0ubuntu1~16.04.4

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary

  CVE-2018-15664, CVE-2019-5736
