Sandfox: A Poor Man’s Sandbox
Sandfox is available for testing and use. This new program, written entirely in bash and using only core Linux commands like mount and chroot, creates filesystem sandboxes and runs apps in them. Very easy to use, it is also quite configurable. It includes a profile for running Firefox sandboxed, a valuable ability in order to give Java, Flash, and plugins only limited access to your system. I’ve been using it for a few days with great results.
I believe sandboxing is ‘the next big thing’, and I didn’t find any easy to setup and use tools for this. Hence, Sandfox.
