    How do you plan on getting around the Driver signing @DavidXanatos? You don't sign your stuff correct?

    Using a leaked code signing certificate I found laying around the Internets.
    So far it works great :D

    You can find this particular certificate on GitHub with the right keyword, or through google, don't know who put it there and why but it seams to work fine enough.
    And since its the only viable option I have no other recourse than to use it.

    That is... unless.... someone donates a k€ for the good cause. :rolleyes:

    Mmmm, the long trailed day ha arrived. As a SBIE veteran I should be grateful the product has survived the Sophos era and as recent convert to Linux and therefore Open Source software I should view this as a positive move.

    Unfortunately Linux teaches us also that open source means evangelists for their view of the best development path leading to fragmentation and diversion. That can lead to schism and fruitless debate at the expense of progress. I sincerely hope my old friend Bo, who has hinted at something positive on the horizon, is not mistaken. We badly need a leader for SBIE in the Tzuk/Curt mode. I hope he's/she's out there.

    Long live Sandboxie!

    Hi Chris, as of this morning, I was told that nothing has changed. Lets hope it remains that way. What you are saying we need is what we ll get if it happens. :)

    FWIW, according to Curt, when I asked if 5.33.6 was good to go with the next W10 update, he said "Yes, 5.33.6 works in both Fast Ring &Slow Ring, So, it should be good for a while. I tried to give people some breathing room before having to release a Win 10 fix."

    Bo

    Yes indeed that would be counter productive.

    I forgot to mention that the version (posts 6280 and 6283) didn't install properly in XP service pack 3. It went through the installation process as normal but no tray icon
    posts 6280 and 6283

    No I'm not, unfortunately, a simple code signing certificate is not enough for a driver.
    That is something you can use to sign your installer to make it look better.

    One needs a Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing certificate, see here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/dashboard/get-a-code-signing-certificate
    To be precise not just any EV Code Signing certificate, one from one of these 7 vendors that MSFT accepts.
    The cheap once (assuming no extra hidden costs) are around 300€/Year
    And if one is to go that route and through the hassle IMHO one should get one valid for 3 years right away.

    So its not cheep unfortunately, and collection donations doesn't seam to work, see my patreon https://www.patreon.com/DavidXanatos

    Paypal is always an option. Or some sort of crypto currency. Depands on the amount I guess :D
    I would also take gold coins ;) hahaha...

    Has anyone encountered compatibility issue between Sandboxie and HitmanPro.Alert? HMPA really doesn't seem to like sandboxie, and I'm trying to figure out why. HMPA throws out errors every time I launch something sandboxed. Perhaps there is an issue with Sandboxie that, if identified, can be fixed.

    Advice from Mark Loman:

    Sandboxie is actually stealing tokens and elevating privileges with them so our mitigation is not wrong. Disable Local Privilege Mitigation if you insist on using Sandboxie around your browsers.
    Note that most browsers already run in a sandbox, like Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, so adding another sandbox might be overkill on top of the native sandbox and all our mitigations.

    Yes, please provide a paypal option. I'll gladly give 50 bucks :)

    I don't think that goes well together...a security app signed with leaked certificate!

    Sandboxie deserves better...

    And could not make a formal request to Sophos to offer this certificate, many, including myself, had paid for our perpetual license. It would be more than worthy of their attention to acquire this certificate for the proper operation of sandboxing.

    So...now that Sandboxie is officially open source. Who's the first person/company who's going to make a fork of it?
