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.

No, but BeOSs memory protection was just as shitty. I don't know all the details, but I know a BeOS coder that told me and showed me several very easy ways of mucking with another programs memory space and crashing it and the whole OS.

anyways, windows 9x is mostly dead and hopefully haiku will address a lot of these issues.
