Fixed In Version: webkitgtk 2.28.3
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
A flaw was found in webkitgtk in versions prior to 2.28.3 and in WPE WebKit in versions prior to 2.28.3. The bubblewrap sandbox failed to properly block access to CLONE_NEWUSER and the TIOCSTI ioctl. CLONE_NEWUSER could potentially be used to confuse xdg- desktop-portal, which allows access outside the sandbox. TIOCSTI can be used to directly execute commands outside the sandbox by writing to the controlling terminal’s input buffer, similar to CVE-2017-5226. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity as well as system availability.

Description Pedro Sampaio 2020-09-16 14:30:19 UTC
The bubblewrap sandbox of WebKitGTK and WPE WebKit, prior to 2.28.3, failed to properly block access to CLONE_NEWUSER and the TIOCSTI ioctl. CLONE_NEWUSER could potentially be used to confuse xdg- desktop-portal, which allows access outside the sandbox. TIOCSTI can be used to directly execute commands outside the sandbox by writing to the controlling terminal’s input buffer, similar to CVE-2017-5226. Versions affected: WebKitGTK before 2.28.3 and WPE WebKit before 2.28.3.

Comment 2 Michael Catanzaro 2020-09-16 15:54:31 UTC
Note that RHEL 7 and RHEL 8 are both unaffected (because WebKit is not yet sandboxed in RHEL).
