Zeta MauriceK writes about security in the ZETA operating system. Apparently magnussoft, sole distributor of ZETA, makes security claims [on the German version] that with ZETA "it is not possible to examine a system from the outside without notifying the user due to the architecture of this software." MauriceK seems to think differently, and even gives examples on how code can be executed without the user's knowledge in ZETA. In related news, BeUnited is no more. Instant update: the discussion concerning security just made its appearance on the Haiku m-l.

Not secure

Zeta and BeOS were never that secure. It was not developed as a secure OS and the engineers never paid any attention to security in any major way. In fact, I still remember the BeOSTipsServer site that ran on a BeOS web server how it was hacked within 20 minutes after a bet. Magnusoft doesn't know what they are talking about.
