Sandboxie is a program that allows programs to run in a protected environment under Windows. This way, it is easy to undo changes made by programs or web browsers, and there is no risk of affecting important parts of the operating system. Sandboxie can be used on Windows 7 or later and is offered as open source. It is available in Classic and Plus version. Internally, they work the same way, but the latter has a more modern Qt-based user interface. Release notes since before this release can be found below.
New features and improvements
- ImDisk driver integration
We’re excited to introduce integration with the ImDisk driver. This new addition allows users to create boxes located directly in a RAM disk, providing improved performance and speed.
- Encrypted sandbox support
The security of your data is our priority. With the newly added Encrypted Sandbox support, users can now create secret sandboxes that ensure no data leaks to the host computer. This feature is designed for those who are looking for an extra layer of security.
ImBox Component: Leveraging DiskCryptor’s encryption prowess, our new ImBox component ensures that the sandbox’s root folder is securely stored within an encrypted container file.
Enhanced Security with SbieDrv: Our innovative use of SbieDrv effectively prevents non-sandboxed processes from accessing the root folder of the encrypted sandbox. Your data remains isolated and protected.
ConfidentialBox option: With the “ConfidentialBox=y” option, the host process’s read access to the isolated process memory is effectively blocked, further protecting your sensitive information. Upgrade now for a safer and more streamlined sandbox experience!
Note: The Encrypted Sandbox feature requires Supporter Advanced, Contributor, Great Patreon, Qualified Large and Large Type certificates, and Business, Medium, and Small certificates must be upgraded with an upgrade key obtained from the online store and must be updated. I went to the support page. Then the client obtains an upgraded certificate of the same type from the server. Also for clarity, the system of available certificates has been restructured, Small has been renamed to Subscription, Medium to Personal only, Large has been removed and the Family Pack subscription has been added.
