Anyone can me explain the problem of different results of "GetVersionEx" function (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/librar ... s.85).aspx) in vanilla W10 and Sandboxie:

Result in vanilla W10:

Code: Select all

MajorVersion: 6
MinorVersion: 2
BuildNumber : 9200
PlatformId  : 2
Result in Sandboxie in W10:

Code: Select all

MajorVersion: 10
MinorVersion: 0
BuildNumber : 15063
PlatformId  : 2

Code: Select all

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "windows.h""
#include "stdio.h"

int main()
{
	OSVERSIONINFO osvi;
	BOOL bIsWindowsXPorLater;

	ZeroMemory(&osvi, sizeof(OSVERSIONINFO));
	osvi.dwOSVersionInfoSize = sizeof(OSVERSIONINFO);

	GetVersionEx(&osvi);

	printf("MajorVersion: %d\n", osvi.dwMajorVersion);
	printf("MinorVersion: %d\n", osvi.dwMinorVersion);
	printf("BuildNumber : %d\n", osvi.dwBuildNumber);
	printf("PlatformId  : %d\n", osvi.dwPlatformId);

	return 0;
}

Any chance of stopping installs overwriting the locations for HostInjectDll & HostInjectDll64 in the templates.ini file? I assume this one will do the same.

123456,

The fixes are listed in the post.
The other 2 threads were updated before, please see them for further information.
----------------------------- X ----------------------------------------
Anocs,

Per the devs:
Your app is not properly manifested for Windows 10 so Windows just returns Windows 8 - as mentioned in the API docs.
Sandboxie ignores that fact and returns the actual OS info.
----------------------------- X ----------------------------------------
henryg,

How are you saving your templates? Are you putting them in your Sandboxie.ini file?
If so, they should stay there as long as you select to keep your configuration (or if you just overwrite the current installation).

Regards,
Barb.-

I think henryg refers to:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23015&p=122309#p122303
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=22168&p=123620#p123627
The installer overwrites the Templates.ini file and therefore the corrected paths get overwritten too.
An Expandable Variable for the installation path would be nice! Or is there another possibility of changing these two paths?

Hi Barb, all programs seem to be working well for me under Sandboxie in W7 32 bits and W10 64 bits (1703). :)

https://www.talosintelligence.com/repor ... -2016-0256, CVE-2016-9038. I quickly tested a POC which crashes the entire driver, I guess this seems to be urgent but it seems not a read threat cause after that the entire system becomes unstable (windows 10 x64 1607).

Hello CHEF-KOCH,

Regarding the vulnerability:
This exploit cannot be run within an isolated environment, and cannot be exploited without already being outside of the protection of the isolated environment.
So, if you run your apps Sandboxed, it is highly unlikely that you wold be affected by it.

For Sandboxie, this issue was addressed and fixed on May 2017.

Here's the official response/fix for Dell Protected Workspace users:
https://dellprotectedworkspace.com/support/talos.html

Regards,
Barb.-

The latest beta seems slow when using Firefox 55 x64, so I 've gone back to 5.20. That also feels slow by comparison to non-sandboxed version but maybe a bit better than 5.21-2. Can't provide proff/timings.

Hi henryg ,

Be sure to empty the contents of your Sandbox or create a new one with default settings and re-try Firefox.
If needed, use a new Firefox profile to see if that alleviates the issue.

If the issue is not beta related (if it is, provide the info here instead), please start a new thread providing the required info so that we can test it:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=19746

Barb.-

This is the templates.ini file that resides in the Sandboxie install directory; and which in my case is not in the default location.

To get Office 365 to run sandboxed, per topic/s round here somewhere, it is necessary to edit the templates.ini file manually to change the install folder to the correct location, in my case to

HostInjectDll=c:\Program Files\UTILS\Sandboxie\SboxHostDll.dll
HostInjectDll64=c:\Program Files\UTILS\Sandboxie\SboxHostDll.dll

but when I install or update the program it overwrites the ini file. It's not the biggest issue in the world, but why can't Sandbox work out for itself where it is installed eg from the Registry.

My sandboxes are ram based, so clear on reboot; and I tried a new profile and install. Don't have the time to play with this, and no other comments so perhaps it is specific to my setup.

OK mea culpa time. After A LOT more testing/messing around, inc a full reinstall of Firefox and all addons (oh, the pain!) the problem was the Engadget (uk) website :cry: :cry: :cry:

Ther must still be some sort of Firefox issue as Chrome handles it better (did I mention that I also installed Chrome and replicated so far as possible my Firefox addons). But at least I know I still prefer Firefox.

I haven't even got around to adding Sandboxie (beta or otherwise) into the mix, as it became clear when I installed Chrome (outside of Sandboxie) that something else was up.

At least I have a squeaky clean install of Firefox with fewer addons!!

Thanks to Syrinx for sorting this out for me :D
