[Because our projects could be ported to a distant access server, I'm wanting to become aware of the possible security problems of REBOL, and in this purpose I'm regulary screening the mailing list. My knowledge of this problem is limited - but I'm working on it. So ... could any guru out there be kind enough to explain to me how this image representation/space dump is becoming a security hole ? thanks for answering, christophe]
