3. Description:

Ignition is a utility used to manipulate systems during the initramfs. This

files, systemd units, etc.), and configuring users. On first boot, Ignition

metadata service, hypervisor bridge, etc.) and applies the configuration.

ignition (2.14.0). (BZ#2090647)

Security Fix(es):

* ignition: configs are accessible from unprivileged containers in VMs
running on VMware products (CVE-2022-1706)
