Does using VMware ThinApp isolation trim your risk? This presentation uses known vulnerabilities in popular software products like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Java, and Flash to compare the security implications of native installations and the three ThinApp Isolation modes to determine the viability of ThinApp as a means of using archaic/legacy software. The end result will be a comprehensive discussion on the weaknesses of each installation type and recommendations on the approach that offers the best defense for fending off attacks using common exploits.
