Re: Translation: We're doomed.

Crumbs, indeed.

I've been waiting for a example of an exploit that justifies serious application lock-down/code-signing and traceability. As someone who needs to roll-my-own applications and install my own choice of OS at times, I've resisted the push by Apple and co for features like TPMs, Gatekeeper and SIP to be mandatory. I've got good firewalling and user discipline around trusted sources and checksumming, but it's still a worrisome development. I may have to switch to a small target browser.
