Well there is the winetricks verb sandbox:

Code: Select all

winetricks sandbox
but it doesn't really isolate a WINEPREFIX.

Yes Wine does cause some security vulnerabilities for a host system.

There are many ways to skin a cat... A quick Google search turns up:
How can I sandbox a Wine application on Linux?

A trade off between getting applications to function 100% and good security has to be made, of course...
E.g. SELinux is often a cause of problems - when trying to run Windows applications, with Wine.
