9. Google Discloses Plans For New Malware-Resistant OS
Oh please no..
"It just shifts the risk," he says. "It's just going to be a shift in attacks [to Web applications]...and we've already seen of lot of that [occurring]. If anything, [Chrome OS is] going to highlight Web application security issues."
It is NOT a Malaware-Resistant OS, it's not a "virus-free system". It's sounds just as dangerous as any other system, of even worse.. I mean, who says that building a kernel incorporating a browser is a good idea? Browsers are constantly targets of exploits, thus these exploits would allow the attacker root access to the system. Furthermore, if all of the apps are on the web, doesn't that mean that phishing (one of the worse attacks since it relies on the stupidity of the user and there's no antivirus for that) would get the attacker access to your whole life?
I honestly am fed up with all this "my os has no viruses" crap. As long as there are bugs in the software, an attack is possible. And everyone knows that software had bugs, has bugs and will always have bugs.
I just with people would stop with all this "let's fool our costumers" marketing crap and worry with making really useful stuff with that money!
