  • bug 1383888 - restrict readlinkat
    • “Simple”, but Ubuntu doing major upgrades to Mesa in 16.04.3 was unhelpful
    • Also we might have other problems with libudev in the future; might need CentOS 7 or Ubuntu 14.04 on hand
      • netlink. Sigh.
  • bug 1380701 - link/symlink/rename
    • Found another not-quite-security bug; analyzed it
    • Landed, backed out for silly mistake, relanded

  • win32k lockdown - integrating syscall recording with tests
    • No luck getting working stacks in API Monitor - posted to their forum, hopefully will result in a resolution
    • Taking a look at Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) - can be programmatically triggered, but not clear if it has events for win32k syscalls, or if you can get stack traces from it. (The docs are miserable)

Round Table

When is the best time to un-whitelist $PROFILE/extensions? Use extensions.legacy.enabled? [tom] Maybe an easy question: is it possible/easy to grant access to <stuff> on the fly for a content process

   Use case: Image a world where we have site isolation, and doesn't have microphone access, so we sandbox it off for facebook's content process. Then the user grants mic access to facebook. Can we update the sandbox for that process?
   Audio will be remoted so...
   In general: we would want to remote access to <thing> and gate permission based on the [gecko permissions database] in the parent
   Neat: camera IPC checks that at least one domain in content process has access to camera
   [Bug 1177242] Video device access needs to re-verify UX permissions
   Problem: content process can always pretend to be a domain (But with site isolation this ought to be fixable...)
   History: B2G camera permissions:
