Sandboxie 1.8.4 Plus / Classic 5.63.4 [Update]

Sandboxie Plus

Run programs in a sandbox to prevent malware from making permanent changes to your PC.

Sandboxie allows you to run your browser, or any other program, so that all changes that result from the usage are kept in a sandbox environment, which can then be deleted later.

Sandboxie is a sandbox-based isolation software for 32- and 64-bit Windows NT-based operating systems. It is being developed by David Xanatos since it became open source, before that it was developed by Sophos (which acquired it from Invincea, which acquired it earlier from the original author Ronen Tzur). It creates a sandbox-like isolated operating environment in which applications can be run or installed without permanently modifying the local or mapped drive. An isolated virtual environment allows controlled testing of untrusted programs and web surfing.

Sandboxie is available in two flavors Plus and Classic. Both have the same core components, this means they have the same level of security and compatibility. What's different is the user interface the Plus build has a modern Qt based UI which supports all new features that have been added since the project went open source. The Classic build has the old no longer developed MFC based UI, hence it lacks support for modern features, these features can however still be used when manually configured in the Sandboxie.ini.

Sandboxie 1.8.3 Plus / Classic 5.63.3 changelog:

  • Build 1.8.0 introduced a couple of major changes to Sandboxie's inner mechanics, all preset access directives have been moved to template entries. Sandboxie now fully isolates the NT namespace, reducing the potential attack surface,
  • Build 1.8.2 improves the browser and electron app compatibility quite a bit, it also adds a new web browser compatibility Template wizard allowing to create templates for previously unknown Chromium and Firefox (gecko) based browsers.
  • Please review the full Change log thoroughly as it documents a bunch of new options which allow to control the new compatibility mechanisms and in case of unexpected issues will help to mitigate them.

Changes in Sandboxie 1.8.4 Plus / 5.63.4:

  • This build fixed a compatibility issue with MSEdge 112.x as well as a few other bugs.
