Enable memory protection mechanisms


The system should enable memory protection mechanisms, such as ASLR and DEP.


ASLR and DEP help to mitigate buffer overflow attacks, a common method used by attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in software. Buffer overflows consist in injecting malicious code into a program's memory, and ASLR and DEP mechanisms make it harder for attackers to predict the location of specific memory regions.
