  1. Challenge

    Scan the Images with Trivy and Save the Results

    Check all of the Pods in the questionablesoft namespace. Scan their images with Trivy and save the results for each scan to files in /home/cloud_user. Give each file the name of the image and the .log extension (e.g., /home/cloud_user/myimage:1.1.0.log).

    Note: Trivy is already installed on the control plane node. You do not need to install it yourself.

  2. Challenge

    Delete Pods with Major Vulnerabilities

    Delete any Pods that have high- or critical-severity vulnerabilities in their images. You can delete Pods with --force if you wish.
