This new Firefox browser feature could stop zero-day bugs in their tracks
Mozilla has released Firefox 95 for Linux, Windows and MacOS, which features a new security sandboxing technology called RLBox that uses WebAssembly to isolate potentially buggy code.
The sandboxing technology was co-developed by researchers at Mozilla, the University of California, San Diego, the University of Texas, Austin, and Stanford University.
RLBox works by separating third-party libraries from an app's native code. The first modules it isolates are Graphite, Hunspell, Ogg, Expat and Woff2, with RLBox protecting Firefox against attacks on vulnerabilities in these libraries.
