Flash Player now sandboxed for Safari users running OS X Mavericks

 

If you rushed to upgrade your Mac to OS X Mavericks, congratulations — you’ve just taken a big step forward in web security. Adobe has confirmed that Flash Player is now sandboxed in Safari for Mavericks users, preventing Flash-based malware from accessing code and resources beyond Apple’s browser. The company is taking special advantage of OS X’s new app sandboxing feature, which also minimizes the security risks for other plugins and programs. Safari is undoubtedly late to the party when Flash has been sandboxed for a while in both Chrome andFirefox, but we won’t knock an upgrade that neuters many potential security exploits.
