Submission + - Google buys GreenBorder, maker of antispyware soft

accessdeniednsp writes: "PC World reports Google is buying GreenBorder, maker of the GreenBorder Pro anti-spyware software suite. From the article:

Instead of attempting to identify and block particular attacks or pieces of malware like traditional antivirus apps, GreenBorder Pro changes the operating environment with virtualization and modified user permissions such that attacks can't worm their way into your system or access your documents.""
