    I know that Chromium based browsers handle tabs in separate processes that sandboxes them from other processes. I was wondering what Chromium browsers do about Iframe exploits, cross referrer, Java bombs and redirect exploits? Anyone know about these?

    Here is a good article explaining the sandboxing features of Chrome:

    Thanks Victek123 for the link. Chromium does a lot more than what I thought at first. It seems to be a breakthrough for browser security in its ability to lower access rights and remove privileges. Great read. Thanks again.

    Sorry for the "bomb" nomenclature. I meant Java exploits (not explosions - lol). Sun keeps trying to patch holes in Java for Java based programs (reminds me of ActiveX) and constantly patches Java when new ones become exploited. Using past exploits, Java could hide and transfer trojans, worms, and who knows what else. Most antiviruses can pick up on these because of signatures of past infections but there are new Java "bombs" being prepared as I write :mad: .
