On a server, I'm installing the Adamantix project (http://adamantix.org/) wich is a Debian GNU/Linux distribution hardned with special security patches and extensions applied to the kernel, compilers and standard packages. One of those patches is really interesting for the ng: <quote> * Buffer overflow protection by using a special GCC compiler patch called Stack Smashing Protector (SSP). This compiler is also used to compile the kernel, to protect against kernel buffer overflows. </quote> AFAIK the patch was developed on IBM as an open-source patch to GCC and EGCS. I know that buffer overflows aren't much problem in D but... Any chance of getting this into DMD? Thanks -- Julio CÚsar Carrascal Urquijo http://www.artelogico.com/
