@cyphar cyphar released this 19 May 10:04

This release of runc contains a fix for CVE-2021-30465, and users are
strongly recommended to update (especially if you are providing
semi-limited access to spawn containers to untrusted users).

Aside from this security fix, only a few other changes were made since
v1.0.0-rc94 (the only user-visible change was the addition of support
for defaultErrnoRet in seccomp profiles).

Static Linking Notices

The runc binary distributed with this release are statically linked with
the following GNU LGPL-2.1 licensed libraries, with runc acting
as a "work that uses the Library":

The versions of these libraries were not modified from their upstream versions,
but in order to comply with the LGPL-2.1 (§6(a)), we have attached the
complete source code for those libraries which (when combined with the attached
runc source code) may be used to exercise your rights under the LGPL-2.1.

However we strongly suggest that you make use of your distribution's packages
or download them from the authoritative upstream sources, especially since
these libraries are related to the security of your containers.

Thanks to the following people who made this release possible:

Due to the nature of this release, it didn't go through the normal
public release procedure. However, this break from procedure was agreed
upon on the security mailing list.
