[REBOL] Re: PROTECT bug

RE: [REBOL] Re: PROTECT bug
>> secure throw
** : REBOL - Security Check: Script requests permission to lower security level Yes, allow all, no, or quit? (Y/A/N/Q) N ** Access Error: Attempt to change security level to none ** Near: secure allow ("I love you") i say "no" and it protects me! Ah! iam stupid :) i would enter [secure throw] after doing some agent.. i would expect i go to _my_ security-choice and say yes, but there is someone behind the scenes to force _his_ security. and doing some nasty stuff immediate fter that, with system-access. i thought it was somehow possible to trick rebol out if i answer "no", or even to avoid the security-question, which would be very dangerous for using the reb. pheew, that works not. you show one cannot rely on the rebol-console after doing a malicious script, no way out. _never_ answer a security-question with yes! which means, one cannot give control temporary to agents, only with restricted access by dialect or launching seperate processes and throwing them away after agent finishs. yes, thats true. and launching needs some control about restricting runtime and memory access, which needs specialized system-access. sad, i like the idea of agents to.. BTW i never understand why rebol on linux shares the console. between different processes. hard to see who has the security-question. it would be so easy to launch with xterm -e rebol args no? -Volker [lmecir--mbox--vol--cz] wrote:
