Not Escaping Containers but escaping Clusters - Managed Kubernetes distributions such as Amazon EKS, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) attack vectors can allow you to reach the underlying AWS Account etc. In conversation with Christophe Tafani-Dereeper & Nick Frichette, from Datadog on how this is possible in Amazon EKS and achieving potentially the same in GKE & AKS too.
