Sorry there was no good response here on this, but I think browser abuses are something which folks around NYC*BUG aren’t too engaged in tracking- it’s been a disaster since JS et. al. were invented…  I mean, who thought that running arbitrary code from an untrusted source on the internet, from simply navigating to some site, was ever a good idea?  :)

With that, there are many OS facilities which attempt restricting/sandboxing running processes- with more and less fuss.  (FreeBSD has facilities like jail(2) and capsicum(4), OpenBSD has pledge(2), etc…)

Is there a specific applied security case you are trying to handle?
