Synopsis
========

A vulnerability was discovered in Firejail which may allow local
attackers to gain root privileges.

Background
==========

A SUID program that reduces the risk of security breaches by
restricting the running environment of untrusted applications using
Linux namespaces and seccomp-bpf.

Affected packages
=================

     -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
   1  sys-apps/firejail           < 0.9.64.4               >= 0.9.64.4

Description
===========

It was discovered that a flaw in Firejail's OverlayFS code allowed
restricted programs to escape sandbox.

Impact
======

A local attacker could obtain arbitrary file system access via an
application running within a Firejail sandbox, possibly resulting in
privilege escalation.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Firejail users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/firejail-0.9.64.4"

References
==========
