BSDNow Episode 085: PIE in the Sky

Contributed by tbert on from the and-a-cup-of-coffee dept.

A bit late out of the gate, Undeadly readers are likely interested in the latest episode of BSDNow, featuring news of Solaris working to include OpenBSD's pf as an option on upcoming releases, the Bay Area BSD User Group keeping a stream of videos from their meetings going, some long-form blogging about the OpenBSD ports system, a discussion about keeping your home firewalls up to date, LLVM growing a fuzzing library, and most especially an interview with Pascal Stumpf (pascal@), with an overview of the whys and hows of address space layout randomization (ASLR) and the work extending position-independent executable (PIE) to statically-linked binaries.
