BeOS & Derivatives "Starting with hrev45522, address space layout randomization (ASLR) and data execution prevention (DEP) are available in Haiku. These two features, which have actually become a standard in any modern OS, make it much harder to exploit any vulnerability that may be present in an application running on Haiku, thus generally improving system security."

I'm a huge fan of Haiku, and I think your comment here is extremely important.

Do the Haiku developers know about your concerns? Considering other features, do you feel that fixing the security problems you mention a priority? If you haven't done so yet, would you be willing to list out what you feel needs to be done before you would consider Haiku to begin to be secure?

Do you think this is something that existed in BeOS, despite not being able to look at the source code?

Thank you! ;)
