Although I never used an "imagization" tool (for example, Docker) I understand a container as an instantiated (running or stopped) image which in plural are simply put, a server environment and corresponding application/s, cloned from one computerized machine into another computerized machine (likely a virtual machine);
I further understand such cloning operations save time because application/s (and maybe also an OS) shouldn't be installed again and configured again to reach the state of the cloned machine, so one could start from the cloned state and make changes from there.
When I still used Facebook, I spoke there with some anonymous sysadmin who claimed something like he doesn't use imagization tools as an image could be contaminated with malicious software or hacked somewhere along the process without him knowing it.
I am not sure I enough understand what "imagization" tools are and the subsequent opinion I presented.
Are there arguments against using “imagization" tools in the literature and if so, what are the main ones?
