Adobe Flash Player Gets Sandboxed On OS X MavericksFollows everyone else.

It looks like OS X Safari users will finally get a breath of fresh air. According to the latest post by Adobe, Flash Player is now sandboxed in the latest version of Safari running on OS X Mavericks.

As explained by Peleus Uhley, “Flash Player’s capabilities to read and write files will be limited to only those locations it needs to function properly. The sandbox also limits Flash Player’s local connections to device resources and inter-process communication (IPC) channels. Finally, the sandbox limits Flash Player’s networking privileges to prevent unnecessary connection capabilities.”

Better late than never.
