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 call BS on this post. As someone who has contributed to Haiku, I can tell you that there are computer aided audits (coverity), and that the core developers are not only talented, but also very picky about the commits they let into the tree.

Also as axled pointed out, we have been using the FreeBSD net stack for sometime, so I do not buy your claim about being familiar with the Haiku source code. I have also not seen you in the dev list or on the commits.

If you see real problems, please feel free to file bug reports, preferably with diff's attached.
