The sky is falling! Virtually

Filed under: Security — Hacker @ 4:32 pm

Late last year VMWare released a very cool new tool called the VMWare player. There are now so many cool things that one can do with VMWare that it boggles the mind.

Of course a lot of them are big security problems. Big enough to make the whole USB Drive/ipods are evil scare a while back look, well, as silly as the whole thing was. I’m not going to start listing all of the obnoxious things I can do with VMWare just yet. I don’t want the panic to get started before I get the chance to build some of them out and have some fun.

However, for the record, I do proclaim that VMWare and the portability of VMWare player is a significant technology change that now opens many security holes. Way more than just copying files around.
