Windows AppLocker in R2

I was reading an article in about the latest "breakthrough" in Windows security named AppLocker.

It sounds a lot like AppArmor. Not surprising since the founder of Immunix Linux, Crispin Cowan has joined Microsoft. AppArmor was first used in Immunix Linux, which was acquired by Novell in 2005. For some unknown reason, Novell axed the entire AppArmor team in September 2007.

AppArmor is an alternative to SELinux and is available in SUSE Linux, openSUSE, Mandriva and Ubuntu.
