The latest version of Google’s Chrome OS operating system brings some significant security improvements related to the Shill network manager, including a sandbox and fewer privileges.
Chrome OS 72 was released
last week and Google informed customers that Shill has been placed in a sandbox and it no longer runs as the root user. Developers say these measures should help protect users against vulnerabilities and attacks such as the ones disclosed by a researcher back in December 2016.
