Sandboxed Flash Player Lands in Chrome


Google has released new dev and canary builds of its Chrome browser, which contain a sandboxed Flash Player version developed in collaboration with Adobe.

In software development, sandboxing refers to the practice of isolating processes and strictly controlling their interaction with the operating system.

This kind of restricted environment makes it very hard for attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in order to execute arbitrary code or perform other malicious actions on the computer.

Chrome has featured a sandbox for its main rendering engines since the very beginning, which is one of the reasons why it is currently the least attacked browser.
