Linux Privilege Escalation on Docker by Ignite Technologies

Introduction
Today you will learn how to escalate the root shell if Docker is running on the host machine, or I should
say, Docker privilege escalation to spawn a root shell. While we know that there is an issue with Docker,
all the commands in Docker require sudo, as Docker needs root to run. The Docker daemon works in such
a way that it allows access to the root user or any other user in the particular docker group. This shows
that access to the Docker group is the same as giving constant root access without any password.
