Sandbox For Adobe Flash Player Released

Google rolled out this week the initial Flash Player sandbox for its dev channel users on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Since this past March, Google's software engineers have been working with Adobe to allow Flash Player to take advantage of new sandboxing technology in Chrome, extending the work they?ve already done with sandboxing for HTML rendering and JavaScript execution.

This initial Flash Player sandbox is making Chrome even safer. In particular, users of Windows XP will see a major security benefit, as Chrome is currently the only browser on the XP platform that runs Flash Player in a sandbox. This first iteration of Chrome?s Flash Player sandbox for all Windows platforms uses a modified version of Chrome?s existing sandbox technology that protects certain sensitive resources from being accessed by malicious code, while allowing applications to use less sensitive ones. This implementation is a first step in further reducing the potential attack surface of the browser and protecting users against common malware.
