Done: ASLR in HxD

Post by advsrch »

Hello,

Is there a reason why HxD does not use ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization, https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... domization ) ? When I force its use thorugh group policy, everything appears to be working fine. You can use this to test: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2458544

The current version of HxD should work with it, the next one uses special memory mapping techniques for streams which currently is incompatible with this. So I am not sure if I will be able to enable ASLR.

Thank you for your answer Maël. I would be happy to test ASLR functionality for you, in case you do not have Win7 easily available (or Win8 development preview, where ASLR appears to be... somewhat more mandatory). Either way, looking forward to the new version :)

HxD 2.0 and up has ASLR enabled.
