Opened: Mar 09, 2023

Severity: 3-Major


system_latest_vers network namespaces are disabled by default to prevent host kernel log flooding from inside a container.


When traffic is denied from an IP, we do not get a message saying traffic from a particular IP is denied.


By default, all network namespace logs are disabled except for init namespace.


Command to enable system_latest_vers network namespace denial logs: sysctl -w net.netfilter.nf_log_all_netns=1 (not-persistent) Persistent solution: 1) Create a file: /etc/sysctl.conf 2) Run the command: echo "net.netfilter.nf_log_all_netns = 1" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
