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 was (un)fortunate enough to get intimate knowledge about the Haiku source code after fixing the PCNet driver, and doing a few rounds of code review.


Are there any bug reports for your claims? Have you ever provided a patch?

Oh, and BTW Haiku is using FreeBSD's pcnet driver since six years.

Please troll somewhere else.

You do realize that you are talking to two of the core dev's don't you? They have both been on the project from very early on, and I know for a fact that they both track the commit log and dev list closely.

I have also been watching the project for some time and have no idea who you are.
