I am wondering if Sandboxie can stop an attacker from attacking one's partition table.
Huh. As the partition table is outside of the OS, I can't imagine how sandboxie specifically could control it at all.
From the testing I did a while back I would suspect it does. I tested with software that attacked the MBR and running it thru Sandboxie it couldn't touch the MBR, so I suspect the partition table was also intact.
Straight from the horse's (tzuk's) mouth - when asked (in the Sandboxie Forums): will any and all attempts by malicious software to write to the MBR/Partition Table/Boot Sector also end up in the sandbox?
Oh derp. I was thinking you wanted to sandbox the partition table. Yeah, Sandboxie would prevent a program running inside of it from writing to the partition table or anywhere else that you don't specifically allow.
