[REBOL] Re: Security hole ? (was: image memory representation)

From: arolls:bigpond:au at: 23-Aug-2001 19:09

Supposing an evil program made a very large image this way, but only initialized a tiny bit as seen already. Then it could scan lots of rebol memory, and if it was smart, might be able to get a username and password, if the user had set these previously. I wonder about the memory situation with launched programs. Running launched programs using the Desktop is the most likely way for the user to run something without looking at the code.
