OpenBSD has had userland "W^X" (Write XOR Execute, a policy in which memory pages can be marked writable OR executable, but never both at the same time. This policy defeats attacks that rely on an executable stack or other write-then-execute arrangements).

I've been meaning to post this for awhile now. I have an android Galaxy s Blaze. After the first couple of months of use, I started to have to recharge my phone during the day, even though I left my house with a full charge. I didn't think too much of it, I just figured that the battery was finally broken in. Anyway, A few weeks ago, I updated my ad blocker (adaway).

PuppEX Tahr NEWS 150112
A new version of PuppEX Tahr 32 bit is ready. Most important changes: I've changed kernel from 3.14.20 to 3.18.2-PAE-puppex (latest) and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "modern" enough. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.1 and Google Chrome. Just to make it possible to watch Netflix movies. With PAE compiled into the kernel PuppEX now can address up to 64GB of RAM.
