Kaspersky promises the impossible: A fully secure OS
Eugene Kaspersky had something of a Larry Ellison moment this week, making the bold claim that he and his company are doing what no one else has ever even attempted: developing a secure operating system. Not only is the assertion inaccurate (of course companies have attempted to develop secure OSes in the past), but the pledge of delivering a completely secure OS -- even for something as specifically nichey as SCADA systems and ICSes -- borders on irresponsible in that it's all but impossible to keep.
