6.8.4 File Library Security Concerns

There is no security once the executed programs are offered the possibility to read and especially write files.

This file library offers no controls over what is read or written. Over what other I/O operations are made available. Over how much is read or written. Over for how long.

The file library is better not used by applications for extension purposes. It is meant used by interpreters that have no other business but to execute whatever user desires.
