Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2020-05-02 22:31:33 UTC
CVE-2019-14891 (
  A flaw was found in cri-o, as a result of all pod-related processes being
  placed in the same memory cgroup. This can result in container management
  (conmon) processes being killed if a workload process triggers an
  out-of-memory (OOM) condition for the cgroup. An attacker could abuse this
  flaw to get host network access on an cri-o host.

It's not clear to me what version this was fixed in, if at all.

According to the RH bug, this was fixed in 1.16.1.

Maybe it's time to clean up.
