Software vendors failing to use Microsoft Windows security systems

Danish security tracking company Secunia has reported that around half of third-party software applications are failing to use two key Windows security features developed by Microsoft.

Secunia's researchers have revealed that many of the applications they examined – including Apple Quicktime, Foxit Reader, Google Picasa, Java and OpenOffice.org – do not support two Windows features; Address Space Layout Randomisation (ASLR), which dynamically moves memory access points around, and Data Execution Protection (DEP), which helps to block memory-based code execution by unauthorised software.
