Do you run your browser Sandboxed or not?
If yes, mention which Sandbox you use.
Well, to be honest, I ALWAYS sandbox IE7. I've gotten away somewhat from sandboxing Firefox, simply due to always bookmarking websites, updating add-ons and all that. It was becoming a hassle. I feel with NoScript and AdBlock Plus I am pretty safe. I use Sandboxie by the way.
Most of the time I do with DeepFreeze which is not exactly a sandbox but achieves the same results. Lately having FD-ISR Rescue I use one of the snapshots as a sandbox although I feel somewhat more protected with DeepFreeze running as well.
I was planning to use a sandboxed firefox to avoid getting trojans and stuff by my father's browsing habbits, but now I too find myself to always browse sandboxed Lol.
It gives me great confidence, I have become a happy clicker!
edit://Oh, I use SandboxIE!
I sandbox all browsers using Sandboxie. No problems with Firefox add ons. Just a configuration issue. I also have the browsers set to RunSafer with Online Armor.
Yeah I know DeepFreeze, but that's good when you haven't got to deal with new programs often and documents. But it's good when you want to do "experiments"
Does running IE7 in "protected mode" on Vista count as a sandbox?
I don't think so
I answered "Yes rarely"
I dont feel I need a sandbox since I run Vista UAC SRP and firefox with noscript.
Sometimes I test sandboxies just for the fun of it (the las one I tried was Safespace)
I have Sandboxie installed, but inactivated, if I feel I want to test something that i know is malicious (that is the only time I encounter malware)
No sandbox here.
I do use Retunil or deepfreeze or shadow defender when going to unknown sites
but rely mainly on Shadow Protect/Acronis to get me out of a mess should I ever run into a nasty.
A hardware firewall + Firefox and a few add ons is enough security for me.
Yes, always. Sandboxie.
I run IE and FF constantly as an untrusted application in DefenseWall and DW locks also my data partition. It doesn't really matter to me, if I do this with Defensewall or Sandboxie. Isolating malware or making malware harmless is the same to me as long the malware doesn't execute itself.
Any mistake of DW or SB is removed anyway during reboot, so it won't stay permanently on my system.
DW or SB have only one thing to do, save the period between two reboots and that's all I ask from any security software on my system.
Would anyone here be surprised that sandboxing does not prevent getting hacked at all?
Oh oh, there's a salesman at the door.
Back On Topic
Yes, with Sandboxie.
IE7 is always sandboxed on my system. Sandboxie all the way here. Created sandboxed web links and put them on my desktop that make going directly to my favorite sites within Sandboxie even easier.
I don't use a sandbox but I have Returnil on almost anytime I am on the internet and most of the time when I am not.
Would you be surprised that either way does not matter - you simply don't get hacked, at all?
OT, no sandbox, no need.
Tried it a while back, liked it, then soon realized it's, at least for my surfing habits, a complete waste of time and resources. Presently and for the foreseeable future...never.
OT is a nice abbreviation, it means On Topic and Off Topic, very handy. Was this post OT or OT ?
I run FF sandboxed with Sandboxie 95% of the time. Once in a while I'll skip it if I'm just going to visit a place like this.
If Wilders is still marked green by SiteAdvisor, I also visit Wilders sometimes without sandbox, but only in special occasions. Normally I keep FF sandboxed, when I visit Wilders. Wilders has too many knowledgeable people and it is in theory possible that one of them changes into a bad guy ...
No sand box here. That darned sand just gets everywhere.
Sandboxed with "SandboxIE" and also running "Returnil" together.
A good combination for exploring the net in my experience.
A secure browser does not need a sandbox.
