First thanks goes to limingzheng from 360 aegis security team who discovered a bug in Sandbox, allowing to escape the virtualization (a process running in Sandbox could modify files on the real file system). This bug was fixed in version 17.7.

Thanks also to Pierre-Alexandre Braeken who found a bug in the online installer which allowed an unelevated process to execute elevated code during the installation of Avast antivirus. The problem is already fixed in the current build of Avast installer.
