How ASLR protects Linux systems from buffer overflow attacks

Network World

Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) is a memory-protection process for operating systems that guards against buffer-overflow attacks. It helps to ensure that the memory addresses associated with running processes on systems are not predictable, thus flaws or vulnerabilities associated with these processes will be more difficult to exploit. ASLR is used today on Linux, Windows, and MacOS systems. It was first implemented on Linux in 2005.
