    What you want, seems to me, is adding features of DefenseWall to
    SBIE. I don't think it will happen but you got nothing to lose asking.
    You ought to remember that Sandboxies motto is "Trust no program"
    so the white list can never be large and the only programs, really,
    that could belong in it are other security programs.

    Hi Aigle

    SBIE doesn't know anything in terms of known, unknown applications. You can either force an application, or force folders, which means the will ran in a sandbox. But if you are thinking of something like Online Armor's always run unknown applications Run Safer, I don't believe so.

    My thought's on a white list, is they are a nightmare to maintain and will never be complete. Tzuk would spend more time on the white list, which would detract from him doing what he does best, keep up with his program.

    In Online Armor, I turn off Oasis for that reason, and just leave it's white list on, but ignore it. As much as I can I try and run it as a classic HIPS.

    Your arguments are really strong.

    It was just an idea, taken from OA run safer, Comodo sandbox, BufferZone( probabaly), and Avast sandbox.

    I have to agree there.
    As far as I'm aware Tzuk is the lone developer of SBIE,maintaining a whitelist would be a big drain on his time,even though the idea has merit.

    I have SB beta version 3.55.05 installed, and I've just found another odd thing which I reported on the SB forum. Usually whenever I download anything to my desktop it goes through the "Immediate Recovery" window. In the beta version this window doesn't appear.

    I think I'll stay with the latest release as I'm not really that good as a beta tester. My OS is Vista Ultimate 64bit for the record.

    Just speculating but have you perhaps upgraded a web browser and not set a/the specific download folder to which SBIE transfers downloaded files?
    Or perhaps this SBIE forum thread offers an answer (some fixes in version 3.55.06); link

    Indeed. Thanks. The only reason I'm using this beta is because apparently it is safer than the latest release regarding the 64 bit kernel. I'm very happy to report minor problems to the beta forum except sometimes I'm too busy with this computer and can't find the time to test things out. Tzuk is just amazing, he solves problems so quickly.

    Anyone knows what happens to the developer of sandboxie? Looks like his support forum is invaded by a spammer promoting bufferzine

    I have a Sandboxie question which is not really applicable to this beta per se, but to the product in general.

    I RDP into a lot of infected machines at my job on a daily basis. Normally all is cool but lately what I've noticed is that in doing so, my actual machine has become infected (Conficker comes to mind). I know that in the case of Conficker, it is spread via the network.

    My question is, if I were to run RDP from Windows within Sandboxie would that prevent my machine from being infected? Or am I just grasping at straws here guys?

    Thanks.

    Yes, that would work... Sandboxie would prevent writes to your real drive ..

    I don't believe conficker can spread through RDP, but if you share your C drive to the host machine (in the local resources options), the host machine has full write access to your entire drive.... I never really though about it before you mentioned this, but I suppose that isn't entirely safe now, is it?

    Thanks for your post. Well I can tell you that on my machine and a co-workers both of us became infected (the next day) with the Conficker worm after we had remoted into users machines with that infection. This was using RDP within Windows 7 on a domain. So not like we were using some third party web based remote tool.

    That's why I was wondering if Sandboxie would prevent this from happening to us here at work.

    As to your second comment, yeah that does not sound to safe at all.
