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.

Magnussoft$(Bernd),
it seems that the news on the security of the Zeta OS should only generate sales for their OS!

WARRNING! ZETA OS is not secure!

Haiku has the same problems but it does not claim to be secure. Haiku is first of all reconstructing R5, with modifications and improvements, but nevertheless. And you can be sure that the Haiku team will not sell the OS for a lot of money and with some false promises.
