Issue Description:-
Vulnerability reported [CVE-2022-37434] & [CVE-2022-0778] on kube-proxy container. Please let us know how can we remediate it…

Kube-proxy image which we are using –

Need to find out a way to remediate this vulnerability, as this is showing as critical.

When evaluating CVEs, you should look at whether they’re applicable even if found in the image/on the host. Neither of those vulnerabilities are applicable to kube-proxy.

If you do have to resolve them, you can either upgrade to a newer k8s version which will have an updated image base or build a new kube-proxy image.
