Windows 7: Researcher breaks security sandbox in Adobe Flash

Researcher breaks security sandbox in Adobe Flash

Quote:

A security researcher has found a way to bypass a measure in Adobe's Flash Player that's designed to harden it against hack attacks.

Billy Rios, a Google researcher who published the method on his personal website, said it circumvents the local-with-filesystem sandbox, which is supposed to prevent Flash files loaded locally from passing data to remote systems.

By design, the so-called SWF files are locked in perimeter that can't communicate with the outside world. That's intended to thwart malicious Flash content that would otherwise locate sensitive user data and send it to machines controlled by attackers.

Thank You Jan. Hopefully, this will get rid of the Trojan's that keep appearing on a specific Adobe file.

Adobe Sandbox Protection Hacked.....

Quote:

Last year Adobe got the message that it was the target du jour for malicious attacks and stepped up its efforts to secure and protect its software. However, a security researcher revealed that one of the security measures developed by Adobe can be circumvented with relative ease.

The sandbox security control creates a sort of software safe zone--a segregated area where scripts and code can execute without putting the core functionality of the application at risk or allowing broader access to the PC itself. If potentially malicious software is able to bypass the sandbox, though, it can operate outside of that safe zone and potentially exploit the system or compromise data.
