What is Cuckoo Sandbox?
Cuckoo Sandbox is a modular, automated malware analysis system. Running from command-line on a Linux or Mac host, it uses python and virtualization (VirtualBox, QEMU-KVM, etc) to create an isolated Windows guest environment to safely and automatically run and analyze files to collect comprehensive file behavior analysis. These results outline what the malware does while running inside an isolated Windows operating system, including Win32 API calls, files created/deleted, memory dumps, network traffic trace, screenshots of execution behavior, and full memory dumps of virtual machines.
Malwr.com is a free, non-commercial, closed-source example of a running instance of Cuckoo Sandbox while also using VirusTotal (Google subsidiary) APIs and libraries to present the file analysis.
Supported Host Operating Systems: GNU/Linux (Debian/Ubuntu preferred), Mac OS X Required Host Software: Python-2.7, Virtualization (VirtualBox, QEMU-KVM, etc) Supported Virtualized Operating Systems: Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7

Windows 7 ( or any Win-edition) ?
At first I was very interested after the demise of (down but not out ... yet) . . . SandBoxie
Cuckoo SandBox was born in 2010 see Cuckoo History but still no documentation as promised for Installation instructions Win-7
If I understand the CS blurbs it can test new apps without actually installing those apps ? If so what a clever concept !
So far CS is LINUX and MAC focused but nothing for/about Windows ... even after 10 years have passed.
Cuckoo Sandbox could be very helpful for non-Windows users. There are 730+ issues listed on Github ... of which I would expect for a relativly new program ... but I am not prepared to trawl through 700+ issues to find Windows leads.
I cannot rate Cuckoo Sandbox without a Windows version to test.
Just tried to install on Linux.
My copy of Linux Lite would not accept the listed terminal instructions without changing from python to python3.
Went through all that, only for cuckoo to inform me that it only works on python2. The Github page for this software has been "archived" suggesting that it is no longer in development.
I am not a tech expert, so maybe I missed the new repo, but it seems to me another example of abandonware.
