Tor Browser for Android 8.5.6 is out now. The latest version for Linux, macOS, and Windows is still 8.5.5.

This update fixes an issue with the aarch64 version, mostly on Android 9, which caused a crash on launch. Apologies to all who were affected.

Wow…

So electron improved their security features with the recent version 5, but by doing this broke tons of applications because they either need User Namespaces or an SUID executeable (to launch proper isolated subprocesses).

#Signal Desktop noticed this problem and as well and "fixed" it in the worst way possible:

github.com/signalapp/Signal-De

On the other hand #Riot Desktop did a proper fix, which enables an SUID bit on this binary: github.com/vector-im/riot-web/

#infosec #security #linux
