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."

ASLR and DEP can also help developers find bugs: things like dangling pointers to unreferenced memory quickly become apparent, for example.


A better solution for this is to have warnings as errors and make static analyzers part of the build process.
