runc vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 23.10
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro)


runC could be made to expose sensitive information or allow to escape

Software Description:
- runc: Open Container Project


Rory McNamara discovered that runC did not properly manage internal file
descriptor while managing containers. An attacker could possibly use this
issue to obtain sensitive information or bypass container restrictions.

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

Ubuntu 23.10:
  runc                            1.1.7-0ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  runc                            1.1.7-0ubuntu1~20.04.2

  runc                            1.1.4-0ubuntu1~18.04.2+esm1
