[Mono-devel-list] Mono/.NET pluging for browsers

The security risks are too high to be a viable project. 

Mono currently trusts ALL code and doesn't have a bytecode verifier to
prevent malformed code to run, so virus/trojan writers would love

We are working to improve it (see initial CAS work done alredy by
Sebastien Poulio), but we are far from having good sandboxing to make
your project viable.

Think safe,

I'm trying to become a "Rosh Gadol" before my own eyes. 
See http://www.joelonsoftware.com/items/2004/12/06.html for enlightment.
It hurts!
