Does adding a WebViewer page to your file create a potential security issue if it is used to browser the Internet?

 

I've posted a blog page where I consider this and invite you to read it.

The issues are that the Webviewer cannot employ the plugins and safety features of whatever browser you use such as preventing popups and planting cookies or malware downloads.

 

Using a Webviewer for FileMaker specific tasks is probably safe but what happens when it is exposed to the Internet. Are there security issues that cannot be handled by a FileMaker scripter?
