Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is Disabled
Info Nessus Plugin ID 24282
SynopsisData Execution Prevention protection is disabled.
DescriptionThe remote host is capable of supporting Data Execution Prevention (DEP), either by virtue of a processor that supports the NX bit or through software, using what Microsoft calls Safe Structured Exception Handling (SafeSEH).
The current DEP policy, though, is set to 'Always Off', which prevents it from protecting the host.
SolutionChange the DEP policy on the remote host if desired.
