'CVE-2015-4495 and SELinux', Or why doesn't SELinux confine Firefox?

Security

Why don't we confine Firefox with SELinux?

That is one of the most often asked questions, especially after a new CVE like CVE-2015-4495, shows up. This vulnerability in firefox allows a remote session to grab any files in your home directory. If you can read the file then firefox can read it and send it back to the website that infected your browser.

The big problem with confining desktop applications is the way the desktop has been designed.

Developer lowers Drupal's barrier to entry

From a consumer perspective, I'd like open source to be ubiquitous to the point of invisibility. Using recent Ubuntu distros, I'm always shocked at how professional the environment feels. Just five years ago, you'd need to hunt down drivers and do a bunch of fiddling to get basic things like a sound card working. Now there are so many pushbutton ways to deploy open source tech, from OSes to CMS distros on Pantheon to buying an Android-powered mobile phone. We're not quite to the point where CMS users can feel like open source is transparent; there's still a huge investment in vendors to give you the expertise to manage your Drupal or WordPress site, for example. But we're closer than we were a decade ago, and that's pretty exciting. Read more
