wiredmikey writes “Google announced today that it will be extending Chrome’s sandboxing technology to include the Flash Player plug-in. ‘Sandboxing’ technology is a method of isolating an application from the rest of the operating system and tightly controlling its resources. According to Google, the new sandboxing feature adds an additional layer of protection and will help protect users against malicious pages that attempt to hijack systems or steal information from the system.”
