Comment(by noloader):

 Replying to [ticket:15209 noloader]:
 > Running BinScope on the latest Pidgin for Windows shows pidgin.exe is
 missing some platform security features, such as DEP and ASLR.
 If the project needs an audit tool for Linux, I suggest Tobias Klein's
 [http://www.trapkit.de/tools/checksec.html CheckSec].
 [http://www.trapkit.de/tools/checksec.html CheckSec] has a few minor
 shortcomings, but it will do until the [http://sourceware.org/binutils/
 BinUtil] folks give us a tool like auditelf (in the spirit of readelf,
 etc). For example, CheckSec will report an executable has a no-exec stack
 based on the presence of the GNU_PT_STACK header marking; where it should
 report based on GNU_PT_STACK *and* a 0 size.
