Support for relational databases is a growing focus for Kubernetes users, and the release of Windows Server 2019 is expanding options for .NET applications and SQL Server. SQL Server workloads, however, often rely on Active Directory and Windows Auth, and storage arrays, which will not be supported by SQL Server containers on Windows Server 2019. Fortunately, a new Rancher Labs partner, Windocks, offers new options for SQL Server on Kubernetes and Rancher.
Today we announced releases v2.1.6 and v2.0.11 to address two security vulnerabilities recently discovered in Rancher. The first vulnerability allows users in the Default project of a cluster to escalate privileges to that of a cluster admin through a service account. The second vulnerability allows members to have continued access to create, update, read, and delete namespaces in a project after they have been removed from it. You can view the official CVEs here CVE-2018-20321 and here CVE-2019-6287.
