Mounted Docker Socket
container-security-container-host-security-breakouts | Level: Easy | Total Lab Runs: 0 | Free Lab |
To enable services running inside the container to communicate with Docker daemon, it's a very common practice to mount the Docker UNIX socket inside the container. However, if such compromised of such container can then lead to the compromise of the underlying host machine.
In this lab exercise, you are given access to the root user of the container which has Docker socket mounted to it in read-only mode.
Objective: Leverage the mounted Docker socket to get access to the host machine and retrieve the flag stored in the root directory of the host system!
The following activities are strictly prohibited on this website unless otherwise explicitly stated as allowed in the mission statement:
- Using automated scanners
- Using brute force attacks
- Denial of Service attacks
- Attacking other student machines in challenges where you might achieve a shell on the vulnerable system
- Attacking the lab infrastructure
Users violating the above will be either temporarily or permanently banned from the website.
If you are unsure about an activity, then please contact support to confirm that it is allowed on our website.
Technical Support for this Lab:
There is a reason we provide unlimited lab time: you can take as much time as you need to solve a lab. However, we realize that sometimes hints might be necessary to keep you motivated!
We currently provide technical support limited to:
- Giving hints for a lab exercise
- In rare circumstances, if you have totally given up (NO!!!) then tell you how to solve it. This will be limited to sharing the solution video or lab report
- A lab exercise fails to load or has errors in it
If you need technical support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org clearly mention the name and link of the lab exercise and other essential details. The more descriptive you are, the faster we can help you. We will get back to you within 24 hours or less.
