My specific comment to this news article and your response is that third party objects always reduce security as they increase features and that is a constant and yes that is not new.
A slight side-note...
You must be new here. Welcome to Slashdot.org where you can get news of many varieties. Some is stale dated, some is duplicated but it's all kinda interesting to talk about and that is why most of us like it here.
Because even if the news is old, the discussion at Slashdot is always new! (well at least the higher rated discussions)
