Someone Please Fix ASLR!

Filed under: Windows Vista — Tanveer Badar @ 4:45 PM

Not the feature but what it means. I have heard/read over 3 different expansions for the abbreviation.

ASLR: Address space layout randomization.
ASLR: Address space load randomization.

And some more which I forgot. Its just a mass confusion over what the term actually means while the implementation is simple to explain.

One boot, you get dlls loaded like A B C D E F
Second boot, you get dlls loaded like D E C B A F

And that’s it.
