  • The patches I've been talking about for months are finally landing in 60.
  • Landed:
    • bug 1401062 - clone(), as mentioned last week
    • bug 1430756 - stop testing for unshare(); was causing assertion failure with containers' external sandboxing
    • bug 1126437 - blocking socket/connect in content
      • This is the important one — raises the bar for sandbox escapes.
      • Potential problem: Nvidia GL has an extra connection to the X server, which is now blocked, but this doesn't seem to affect performance.
      • Sandbox level 4 now exists for this. Level is capped at 3 on Linux if audio remoting is turned off.
      • Probably "fixes" any remaining bind() issues, because they'll quietly fail to socket() instead.
      • Any surprise DBus calls will also start breaking now.
    • bug 1386019 - misc audio stuff that content doesn't need anymore
  • Almost landed:
    • bug 1430949 - Network namespace
      • Yak shaving for detecting "remote" X, which includes TCP to localhost.
      • I learned some new things about X11 display names.
    • bug 1213998 - chroot; literally one line
  • Wrote:
    • bug 1376910 - The Revenge of SysV IPC Blocking
      • Did telemetry queries to try to figure out how to detect fglrx; actual testing would be nice but I don't have hardware
