[Digg] Reflections on trusting random websites.

Away from home? No compiler? Type your source code in and have it compiled online. Just choose a language and enter your code in the box. Choose a language by clicking on the language below. You can either use C#, VB.NET, C or Fortran currently.

I don't have any problems whatsoever with letting random websites compile binaries that I then run in completely unprotected space. Do you?

Security issues aside, how long do you think it'll be before someone uploads the whole X11 source tree and tells the servers to compile it 10,000 times in a row? ;]

Has someone alerted bruce_schneier?
