CWE ID 668


CVE-2024-32473 is a vulnerability in Moby, an open-source container framework used in Docker Engine and Docker Desktop. In version 26.0.0, IPv6 is not disabled on network interfaces, even when the --ipv6=false flag is used. This allows containers with ipvlan or macvlan interfaces to have direct access to the host machine's network link, increasing the attack surface of IPv4-only networks. The vulnerability can lead to unauthorized communication with other hosts on the local network and potential SLAAC-assigned addresses for containers. To mitigate this issue, users should update to version 26.0.2 and completely disable IPv6 in containers using --sysctl=net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1 during container creation. The vulnerability has a base severity rating of MEDIUM and a CVSS score of 4.7, with high confidentiality impact but no integrity or availability impact.
