Is Windows RT as secure as it should be?

Because Windows RT apps are available only on the Windows Marketplace, they should be more secure and resistant to hacks, right? Well, not exactly. While Microsoft does have a better control over what applications are being published, they aren't that hard to tamper with once they are installed...

I did it for my old "Baldur's Gate" savegames in Windows, but never tried in Android... Sounds fun!
But that should not be a security issue for RT, just for a particular game.

I agree.
It's just stupidity of a developer to keep saved game, with resources that should be bought in a text file...
Windows has nothing to do with it...

Rt could be msft achilles, 90% of people don't follow tech news, hence don't know that rt isn't a full pc os.. not surprised if people will be disappointed cos they think rt is the same as the normal windows 8 when they buy their devices
