A PoC was also produced and is public. Patches are now available and proposed to Linus. This may not simply be information disclosure, but containerized environments may through chroot and mount namespaces mask directory structures as read-only or inaccessible via the use of bind-mounts. Such read-only masking may be circumvented by this vulnerability on systems where these directories are not otherwise protected by MAC (i.e. SELinux or AppArmor).
