Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 942027.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-16884.
More information:

runc, as used in Docker and other products, allows AppArmor and SELinux restriction bypass, and thus a malicious Docker image could breach isolation.

This update carries SELinux-related fixes in the golang-github-opencontainers-selinux library, that will be leveraged in the upcoming runc security update.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.0~rc1+git20170621.5.4a2974b-1+deb10u1.
