Summary : "In the last couple of years we have seen how the introduction of sandboxing into some of most used software in the world has changed the software exploitation landscape. Since the release of Adobe Reader X, for example, there has been no publicly released exploit for it. However, most of us are not familiar with how these sandboxes work. Knowing how they work makes us understand their limitations, and makes us aware of what they can and they can't do to protect us."
