    SubjectStopping buffer-overflow security exploits using page protection

    Please see . Is there any good
    reason that we can not run Linux executables with the execute permission
    turned off, by default, on all stack and data pages? Wouldn't this stop
    buffer-overflow security exploits that try to inject executable code onto
    the stack or into function tables? i386 won't support it, but other
    architectures do.
