Unhackable version of Windows being developed

Israeli security firm MorphiSec is developing a version of Windows which it says will be virtually impossible to hack.

MorphiSec co-founder Dudu Mimran, who is also the CTO of the Telekom Innovation Laboratories Israel, said the very secure version of Microsoft Windows is what “Microsoft should be doing”.

MorphiSec uses a patented technology to provide an unbreakable security layer around core, mission-critical systems.

The company protects Windows against zero-day attacks, where an attacker exploits a security vulnerability which is still unknown to the vendor and has therefore not been fixed.

Mimran told Business Insider that they have created a version of Windows that “randomises all the memory” for specific Windows applications.

“By making computer memory a moving target, a hacker can’t mess with it, and therefore can’t cause damage to the rest of the computer or the data,” he said.
