re: The Increasing Failure Of Malware Sandboxing
The point on fixed application stacks is absolutely correct. Extending the point to mobile devices is less. Larger enterprises worry more about sensitive data leakage from mobile devices than mobile devices becoming an attack vector to their wired networks. These are protected by the multiple wired security enforcement points that have been deployed over the years (within the limitations of their signature and fixed stack sandbox based solutions.

re: The Increasing Failure Of Malware Sandboxing
I don't fully agree with this phrase "malware sandboxing approaches will only capture the threats that come in through the front-door" - is it a problem of placing the sandbox probe in the right spot or a technological issue? I would rephrase it in "malware sandboxing will only detect mainstream malware", but I wouldn't point at the "placement issue" as the main motivation for failing.
