Security issues with SCILAB on Windows XP

Post by m2 » Wed, 27 Apr 2005 03:52:16


Hi
I like to install SCILAB on the computer in our computer lab for
educational purposes.
My main concern is with security issues.
I want to make sure the users do not gain access to a command prompt or
alter internals of the computer through scilab.
If you have suggestions/experience with this issue please share your
findings.
 
 
 

1. Add-On's In Windows XP.

2. Cumulative Security Update Q811114: Security Update (Windows XP or Windows XP Service Pack 1)

I am experiencing a similar problem with update a security update Q811114 (please see update log below). I have installed it many times but it keeps showing up. This is the first time in years that I have ever expereinced this type of problem with the same update appearing over and over. I have tried it with all firewalls and virus checkers turned off so that doesn't seem to be the problem. Any ideas

Thank
