lotuspsychjehey mate05:00
lotuspsychjewhat you guys think of this?05:00
lotuspsychjethe guy says linux is vunrable as windows and macs these days05:01
Bashing-omlotuspsychje: There is a discussion thread on the forum . Th forun is slow right now in "seraching" . Soon as I can I find the thread.05:05
lotuspsychjeoh cool, let me know05:05
Bashing-omlotuspsychje: Got it : https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2346560&highlight=0-days .05:06
lotuspsychjelemme check05:07
lotuspsychjeseems like updated systems are patched as always05:08
Bashing-omYeah .. I tend to have a high degree of trust in mc4man .05:10
Bashing-omOne thing about the ubuntu security team .. when an expoit is discovered .. they are some kind of quick .05:11
lotuspsychjestill scary to know, 0days reaching the regular ubuntu desktops lately05:11
lotuspsychjeit means the attackers targetting the avarage desktop user that doesnt update daily05:12
Bashing-omyes, that is true ! Keep updated . And Chris Evans is to be applauded for his efforts .05:17
lotuspsychjeyeah i also think this must be taken real serious05:18
Bashing-omChris was not hellering wolf !05:19
lotuspsychjemorning dax05:33
lotuspsychjedax: you missed out morning security talk: http://arstechnica.com/security/2016/12/fedora-and-ubuntu-0days-show-that-hacking-desktop-linux-is-now-a-thing/05:45
lotuspsychjewhat you think of this?05:45
daxI hope it's a warning for the sort of Linux fan who likes to go on about Windows having security vulnerabilities as though Linux doesn't. Past all that sort of thing... Linux desktop really needs more sandboxing.05:49
daxWe have this bizarre thought process where we protect the stuff that can be gotten back by reinstalling, but everything in $HOME is free game for random browser exploits.05:50
lotuspsychjedoesnt apparmor takes care of this stuff?05:52
daxMore specifically-related to this particular issue... the attack surface presented by gstreamer in Firefox is clearly ridiculously over-large if it includes a SNES emulator.05:52
daxlotuspsychje: last I looked a few years ago there was an apparmor profile for firefox that was disabled by default05:53
lotuspsychjei see..05:53
daxbut yes, selinux or apparmor are the sorts of things we need more of05:53
daxbut they're *really* hard to do in a way that doesn't compromise usability05:53
daxsee for example fedora users and their tendency to just turn selinux off the first time it stops something they want to do05:54
lotuspsychjei guess it will be alway a cat n mouse game with 0days05:55
lotuspsychjeexploiting peoples bad habbits05:55
lotuspsychjeeven on a more secure Os05:55
lotuspsychjewasnt there like a sort of sandbox package already?05:56
lotuspsychje!info firejail05:57
ubot5`firejail (source: firejail): sandbox to restrict the application environment. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.9.38-1 (xenial), package size 138 kB, installed size 491 kB (Only available for linux-any)05:57
