Re: helpful What a surprising fact to realize billions of places for vulnerabilities to possibly turn up. And interesting how the big guys started work quickly to attempt some fixes, although it's still a wonder that it's been a lurking problem for so long.

Re: helpful Besides Safari, Chrome, Edge & IE11 -- what about other lesser used browsers? Did this flaw just completely kill off the market for non-mainstream browsers? Opera? How about Amazon's Fire OS browser, Silk? (Presumably, Amazon will eventually incorporate Chrome's fixes in its own way since it uses Chromium.)

no one is safe? > "The good news is that cloud users don't have any special vulnerabilities.."

Hmm. I thought I heard that cloud users might be especially vulnerable because the cloud could expose data across shared computational resources -- and the cloud is, for sure, a shared resource. So a bad guy might just need to have legit access to some part of the cloud -- and gain access to everyone else's data on the shared servers. That's a bit more vulnerable than a network of PCs that are shared within an internal department of a company?

Re: helpful It's a good move. I'm glad to see browser-based protections. It seems like an obvious step.

helpful Wll that's really helpful. I didn't know about the possibliity of isolation on Chrome.
