The development of this skill relies on the resolution of other stages. Then again the 'same flaw' you point to with Windows 7 could be used on OS X or Linux to infect the user on those other OSes. Well, then I'll rephrase and say that Mac OSX kept a lot of UNIX architecture. But if the software is in user level it can do harm.And less errors if it is in system level. ... have a peek at this web-site
Because we locked that product down to fix a lot of the security problems.” The Chief Operating Officer has managed to produce a small slip-up when he has indicated that SP2 SOURCE Flame ON !!! There are also plenty of Mac related offerings as well. Eventually, apps will only be able to alter their own configuration folders without calling out to a separate process (for load and save.) For protection against malicious applications, that's a far
So you saying that Windows and Linux should be installing programs in user level ? People who use Linux are geeks who have too much time on their hands. In SP2 the Vista's UAC will be safer than before. Softpedia and the Softpedia logo are registered trademarks of SoftNews NET SRL.
It's about making your OS work for you, not the other way around.

I'm saying that you're overstating the security advantage of installing applications as root - which is certainly there, but you're overstating it.
In all OSes I am familiar with users have an area that they can write files to. What do you mean by having files put in the user writeable areas?

I'll concede the point that Windows doesn't scripting functionality though. (Man I've been wrong a lot lately... See here for a complete comparison.

No it's not. Check This Out Planet Vanishes - How does this affect the orbiting starships? The argument made isn't entirely coherent.

Of course it doest mean anything in terms of security (and I think the article is just Apple promotion), but it clearly shows that Ubuntu is seen as potential threat - WATCH NOW » Got a tip for us?

Time will tell. Once you use ANY browser whatsoever and open up your computer to the Internet there's ALWAYS a risk of "unofficial" code being loaded and executed -- not always a VIRUS BTW. People who use windows come from all walks of life and business. High five if it actually is but I have never had many security issues in all my computer days.
I think not. Spent DAYS patching windows boxes and installing av definitions in the early days. It has the largest installed user base and therefore is a natural target for hackers. have a peek here Address-space-randomization doesn't matter a lot when you've convinced an internet-facing third-party program to send an Applescript event to write malicious code to a folder that should never have been allowed to
Malware exists for *nix, Mac, Windows, Android, iOS, Symbian, Xbox(yes), hard drives, and bios.

XP lacks in security and power management compared with Vista and Windows 7, and, in this context, the latter two are better choices. “Not only do you have fewer patches, not
