Isomorphic JavaScript: The Future of Web Apps – Airbnb Engineering

This idea isn’t new — Nodejitsu wrote a great description of isomorphic JavaScript architecture in 2011 — but it’s been slow to adopt. There have been a few isomorphic frameworks to spring up already. Mojito was the first open-source isomorphic framework to get any press. It’s an advanced, full-stack Node.js-based framework, but its dependence on YUI and Yahoo!-specific quirks haven’t led to much popularity in the JavaScript community since they open sourced it in April 2012.

Ransom32 Is a JavaScript-Based Ransomware That Uses Node.js to Infect Users

“Ransom32 may be the first cross-OS ransomware family. A new type of ransomware has been spotted, the first of its kind, a ransomware that uses JavaScript to infect its users, being coded on top of the NW.js platform.[…]” Un ottimo motivo per mettere node.js tra i virus riconosciuti da tutti i principali AV. Bellina anche l’idea del RaaS. Ormai è tutto as a Service.
