Bug in Sandbox with Google Chrome (Avast IS 5.0.396)
« on: January 29, 2010, 08:28:45 PM »
All Hi. I recently discovered a very nasty bug in the module sandbox. When enabled virtualization in Google Chrome, it refuses to work Adobe Flash Player.
P.S. Sorry for my English, I'm from Ukraine

I don't have this problem >>> may be because I'm running the dev version of Chrome (5.0.375.3), with flashplayer (10.1RC) integration...

edit: and again guys, Chrome is already sandboxed, you don't need to use yet another sandboxing process with it ;D

@ bri

Just having AIS in your signature does not provide enough information for pertinent help.  

Add system information like my signature so that the helpers can assist further.

Google Chrome already has its own sandbox. If you edit the shortcut and add --safer-plugins to it, it will run all the plugins sandboxed as well. So, I'd suggest doing that for now and turning off the sandboxing in Chrome in AIS if you can't live w/o youtube  ;D

at least, I'm not the only one anymore mentioning it on these forums :) I've repeated that a few times, also linking to a description page http://blog.chromium.org/2008/10/new-approach-to-browser-security-google.html ...but people kept asking about sandboxing Chrome with Avast.
 Okay, this said, thanks about the shortcut argument, I didn't know this one.

edit: just found http://www.chromeplugins.org/tips-tricks/chrome-command-line-switches/

edit: I should have added, since the last few builds from 5.0, Chrome comes with FlashPlayer 10.1 integrated
http://blog.chromium.org/2010/03/bringing-improved-support-for-adobe.html

 which should lead to this soon or later:

chromes sandbox is nothing like avast sandbox or sandboxie its more for privacy in browsing.it has nothing to do with living without you tube as im not the one on it my kid is and its annoying when i paid for ais because of the sandbox and ive had nothing but compatibility problems with chrome and ie.

Well, nope... It has very much to do with security and very little with privacy. Please read the sandbox design document. Also, The Security Architecture of the Chromium Browser - that's a 2008 paper so rather outdated but still illustrates the point pretty well - chrome sandbox IS like Avast sandbox.
