What’s in a container image: Meeting the legal challenges | Opensource.com

November 8, 2019 Leave a comment

Do you remember when you bought a license and installed your copy of windows X on a VM and didn’t think twice about it. You loaded your software and maybe setup a reoccurring backup for it and you were done right?

Nowadays, there are risks at even using that Windows license on a cloud provider other than Azure (but that is another story)

Today, running containers is the new thing and that software is open source right? Not always!

You could have more than just Vulnerability risk to worry about. Some container images can also have License risk and you could have legal troubles too!
