MalwareTips.com : Sandboxie Giveaway


It is a pleasure for us to announce our own software license giveaway. Ronen Tzur, the creator of Sandboxie, was kind enough to offer us 7 one year licenses for use at home to give away.

[hr]

Product overview : Sandboxie

How does Sandboxie work?

Sandboxie creates an isolated environment within your system. Everything that happens inside this isolated environment doesn't affect your files and registry. You can run your everyday applications inside this environment and if something bad happens (possibly malware related) you can rest assured that it won't affect your system. Simply close the sandboxed program and delete the content of the sandbox.




What Sandboxie can do for you?
  • Secure web browsing. This is Sandboxie's first use. The Internet can be a dangerous place, simply by browsing to a bad website you can get infected. Clicking a link can get you there. By running your browser inside Sandboxie you don't have to be afraid of malware when clicking links.
  • Secure e-mail. Malware spreads through e-mail as well. The e-mail might even come from someone you know and look legitimate. You can get infected by clicking a link inside this e-mail or by opening an attachment. Many companies fell victim to this kind of attacks (called spear-phishing). A recent example is the RSA SecurID breach.
  • Ensuring your privacy. Deleting the sandbox means deleting every file that the program you had running as sandboxed created. Browsing history, cookies, cached temporary files gathered during your browsing sessions are gone if you choose to.

What differentiates Sandboxie from other similar applications?
  • First of all, Sandboxie is one of the first of its kind. It exists since 2004 and it is permanently improving. Therefore, it is a mature product and compatibility with known software is really good.
  • It is extremely flexible, offering a large degree of customization. When you sandbox your everyday applications you don't want to lose everything due to virtualization. For example you might stumble upon a good site while using your browser and you need to bookmark it. Sandboxie can allow direct access to your bookmarks without diminishing the protection. You can create multiple sandboxes, every one with a different configuration.

What Sandboxie doesn't do?

Sandboxie is just one layer of protection. It doesn't replace an antivirus, a backup program or a firewall (although you can customize it so that only certain applications running within a sandbox are allowed to access the Internet). Sandboxie can't protect you if your system is already infected.

Free vs. paid
Sandboxie also has a free version. Compared to it, the paid version adds the following functionality:
  • Removes the nag screen that initially appears after you have used Sandboxie for more than 30 days;
  • Enables the Forced Programs and Forced Folders features;
  • Allows you to run programs in more than one sandbox at the same time;
  • See Register Sandboxie page for more information.

I'm super happy owner of a program through MalwareTips. Sandboxie is my primary application, now you organize another competition now for this program. I very much hope to extend the license for another year, so please credit me for the competition. Today it is even not imagine how you can run Firefox without Sandboxie.
I wish you all good luck.:preved:
