sandbox to restrict the application environment
  8 reviews

Firejail is a SUID security sandbox program that reduces the risk of security breaches by restricting the running environment of untrusted applications using Linux namespaces and seccomp-bpf. It allows a process and all its descendants to have their own private view of the globally shared kernel resources, such as the network stack, process table, mount table.

If you see a soldier going to war and say – no i don t take my gun -what do you think about him? If you see a father giving his 4 year old kid a loaded gun for play- what do you think about him? There where 2 comments here made me super scared to use firejail. On the other hand every computer expert strongly advises a sandbox, especially if you want to browse the internet. As I am on basic level on computers and linux i overthrew myself and installed firejail- but carefully and step by step. And what can I say-- I WORKS WONDERFUL- never experiencing any problems. So my conclusion about firejail: It is like a loaded gun against all these terrorists infecting the NET: INEVITABLY- BUT HANDLE WITH CARE!

Holy Moly this severely screwed up my Mint 20.2. It seems maybe the default profiles are incorrect for this version of Mint.

It corrupted a number of my software programs. I am running Linux Mint 19.1 and it destroyed Thunderbird, LibreOffice (all packages), Firefox and the computers it was loaded on were really screwed up. I about lost my mind trying to figure out what had caused the computers to be so messed up. Finally I uninstalle Firejail and the computers were all fine after that.
