Apple Sandboxes Further Use

It looks like Apple will be using sandboxes for a bit more than the current couple processes in the future (perhaps Snow Leopard). Looking at the CUPS code (CUPS was purchased by Apple in February of last year), they’ve added support for sandboxes to their development tree, which will theoretically make it into CUPS 1.4. As OS X exploits start to become available in the wild, I hope Snow Leopard confines many more applications (maybe Safari…). It’s nice to see so many major operating systems adding advanced access control features.
