Starting with version 6, avast! Antivirus offered several new protection features to include the AutoSandbox. avast! Free Antivirus 6 does not include the full Sandbox module or its enhancements. avast! 7 extends virtualization “sandbox”. For more information about this feature, how it works and how it differs from avast! Pro and avast! Internet Security, please refer to:
- What is the avast! Sandbox (avast! Process Virtualization)?
- Using the AutoSandbox
- AutoSandbox – why are you annoying me?
Thank you, and yes I'm already fully aware of the deference between an auto SB and full SB basically an auto SB will automatically encapsulate/sandbox a suspicious app or file where a full SB is able to encapsulate/sandboxe an entire application and typically will block the vast majority of malware if not all. But SBIE unlike most sanboxes allows for deeper integration with the Windows 64 bit kernel I believe its over %99 with version 4 which is one of a few 'major' reasons SBIE is the currently the most secure sandbox app for Windows. Well what I'm really looking for is some input regarding alternatives to SBIE's full SB process, Cuckoo Sandbox looks very promising but I'm not quite sure if Cuckoo has been optimized yet for running common app like browsers,email apps & etc now as anyone who's familiar with configuring SBIE would know how it allows you to cherry-pick which process are allowed to save outside the protection of the sandbox which is necessary if say you want to save bookmark data or something less common maybe for example Adblock Plus filter list data, plus just as important would be the level of integration for the SB and if it blocks admin access by default in the Windows version. By the way here's a link to Cuckoo SB and some other alternatives to SBIE http://cuckoosandbox.org/ http://alternativeto.net/software/sandboxie/
