Apple is to require all apps available in the Mac App Store to be “sandboxed,” which Apple says is “a great way to protect systems and users by limiting the resources apps can access and making it more difficult for malicious software to compromise users’ systems.”

“The vast majority of Mac users have been free from malware and we’re working on technologies to help keep it that way. As of March 1, 2012 all apps submitted to the Mac App Store must implement sandboxing. Sandboxing your app is a great way to protect systems and users by limiting the resources apps can access and making it more difficult for malicious software to compromise users’ systems.”
