chroot mozilla?

homeblogtwitterthingiverse



Flash seems able to crash mozilla. Presumably an attacker could do nastier things than crash mozilla if they wanted to. And besides, mozilla is large, and written in C++, and therefore certainly has exploits of its own.

By night my fever addled brain dreams of flash-animated viruses.

It doesn't seem safe to be running mozilla outside solid barriers. A chroot cage would be a start. Someone could still run an X keyboard sniffer or pop up fake windows, but they couldn't 0wn my user account directly.

Longer term: we shouldn't be programming in C and C++, full stop.
