Windows Atom Tables popped by security researchers


Re: Super cool name!

Atom tables seem like a meritorious design on the face of it, but this is more like someone else having a keyboard that can type things into your memory.

Application programmers can be considered to be naive to have trusted atom tables in the first place. However, please remember that Windows was not designed with security as a primary objective.
