Address Space Layout Randomization for aida64.exe

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Could AIDA64 have full support for ASLR for its own executable for the next version? It is just a compiler switch.

Also, what about Forced DEP (Data Execution Prevention), like what browsers have?

And what is the status of including a 64-bit executable?

ASLR and DEP support may be available in some compilers, but the compiler we use doesn't support such options.

We've already adjusted AIDA64 source code to make it possible to compile it to 64-bit. We may release a 64-bit main binary as a beta later this year. Please note that most AIDA64 customers don't need and wouldn't benefit from having a 64-bit main binary. A 64-bit main binary would mean a larger disk footprint, larger memory footprint, and slightly slower overall operation as well. Critical AIDA64 components (CPU/FPU/cache/memory benchmarks and the System Stability Test) are already in a native 64-bit module.

Hello. A 64bit binary would be usefull because it's not possible to use aida64 on a 64bit winpe. Because of this I have to build a second winpe image just to use aida64.

      Are there any plans for a separate 64bit only version of AIDA64?
      I could not find such version. I suppose currently it's 32bit mostly for compablity reasons?
      Also i can not get around the name itself - AIDA64 - it's literally implied in the name that it is a 64bit program.

      Hi,
      I am an AIDA64 user (and customer), and I admit I use it very often.
      In fact, I found only 1 problem : aida64.exe is a 32 bit executable, and seems not exist into a native 64 bit form.
      Please, let me explain :
      Regularly, I use AIDA64 into Windows PE (x86), it's ok.
      But, into Windows PE x64, it don't work because Windows PE x64 don't have subsystem WOW64 to emulate 32 bit programs.
      For now, I see more and more computers with UEFI, and sometimes with an option to revert to "Legacy BIOS" mode.
      If "Legacy BIOS" mode is available, it's ok : I can boot Windows PE x86 and run AIDA64.
      But, many new computers don't have that option and we can boot only with EFI x64, so only Windows PE x64 and I can't run AIDA64 with thoses computers.
      To solve it, I think it might be a good idea to provide a x64 compiled exe.
      What do you think about it ? Maybe is it planned ?
      Thank you
