I see many admins are using Docker for their Mastodon instance. There's no problem in that, it seems so simple, etc. But think about that : process are running using ROOT. And by default, there's no namespaces, so a root user in a Docker container HAS THE SAME PRIVILEGES as the root user on the host. With the amount of technology used my Mastodon, it is INSANE to run it as root.

Please share this post.
