Firejail and firefox for VirtualBank

Postby bester69 » 2017-05-19 05:06

I wanted to know if what i did is correct; I created a clean firejail firefox-home, set sync settings-firefox and stored it in a tar file.

So my script looks like:
Code: Select all
killall firejail
rm -rf ~/.firesec
tar -xvf ~/LINUXDEBS/NOBACKUP/firesec.tar
firejail --private=/home/myuser/.firesec --dns= --dns= firefox-esr -no-remote &

firesec.tar contain the fresh clean home-firejail created in first boot for firefox app, i just added sync parameter to enjoy historial and bookmarks in the clean home.

what do you think, is there any security hole in that? :roll:

Also, the Linux kernel itself is vulnerable to a broad range of exploits thanks to the developers' refusal to prioritise security-related bugs until relatively recently.

So to presume that the same developers can then conjure up a "secure layer" is rather optimistic, in my opinion.

There have been many demonstrated vulnerabilities in the kernel namespace feature (used by firejail & co.), I think it would be folly to rely on it too much.

I can recommend OpenBSD for online banking use, their kernel has been designed with exploit prevention in mind for the last 20 years 8)
