I was not able to find an already-assigned CVE-ID for this. A flaw was found in the overlay filesystem of the Linux kernel which allows an unprivileged user to change attributes of the files in the overlay, particularly allowing access to root-only-accessible files like '/etc/shadow'. References: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1291329 - Red Hat public Bugzilla https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=acff81ec2c79492b180fade3c2894425cd35a545 - an upstream Linux kernel commit fixing the issue.
