Israeli Security Company Builds "Unhackable" Version of Windows

Aug 07

New submitter Neavey writes: Sounds too good to be true, but Morphisec, an Israeli startup, claims to have built an unhackable version of Windows. Its not yet publicly available, a red flag if ever I saw one, but internal testing has had a 100% success rate: “In a statement for BI, Dudu Mimran, the co-founder of the company, describes this new OS version as the Windows that ‘Microsoft should be doing,’ explaining that, while the platform was initially designed for government use, it can be actually installed by any enterprise that wants to make sure that no hack is possible.
Basically, this operating can block any zero-day attack, the founder says, thanks to the operating system randomizing all memory, which means that the hacker cannot target the computer memory and compromise the data stored on the drives.”

What things memory randomization does not fix, left as an exercise for the reader.
