Yesterday, I was reading about the techniques implemented in OpenBSD to make exploiting software bugs harder, such as W^X (W xor X) and using stack canaries. You can read the presentation Exploit Mitigation Techniques on OpenBSD's website, it's quite an interesting read. What are the other OS vendors doing? All I've heard apart from OpenBSD is Microsoft pushing the NX bit onto processor manufacturers.
