    File permission security

    Following up to the interview in Antiview

    The amazing thing about this concept is that under the ancient operating system VMS you had the type of security that we need to prevent malware and such.

    Every file could be restricted by level: System, User, Group and World, and then again with Read, Write, Execute or Delete

    Unfortunately, the permissions lacked the granularity that NT now provides. rwx is just not enough for any higher level environment.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.
