Privacy, Security, Encryption Fresh from winning the PWN2OWN contest yesterday, Charlie Miller has been interviewed by ZDNet. He talks about how Mac OS X is a very simple operating system to exploit due to the lack of any form of anti-exploit features. He also explains that the underlying operating system is much more important in creating a successful exploit than the bowser, why Chrome is so hard to hack, and many other things.

Don't know you "again" what! Please read my comments again! I don't claim anything about it is in or not in the kernel. It's just a shame you said "no way" without and proof!

By saying "no way", you would like to eliminate any possibility that MS put any part of IE in kernel. But you have *no way* to prove it. So put it a fair discussion, draw back your "no way". While I am not sure if IE was and is in kernel, it's a good habit that MS put a lot of features which can, and should be in user space (even some file parsing) into kernel. And by lacking transparency like UNIX, it's always hard to say.
