Docker fave Alpine Linux suffers bug miscreants can exploit to poison containers

During build

So not actually that dangerous after all.

Speaking as somebody who builds a lot of docker images I never really got the attraction to alpine - yeah it's smaller but layers render the whole thing moot; you could hide a full windows install behind layers and nobody would really care - YOUR layer might only be a few MB, that's the power of containers.

Seriously though, not convinced by the dangerous thing, it's bordering on the targetted by a state actor level - at which point you have bigger problems - and easy to fix.
