The giant software corporation Microsoft is ready to roll out a Hardware-enforced Stack Protection, new security feature for Windows 10. This feature will let applications utilize the local CPU hardware in order to safeguard their code while functioning inside the processor’s memory. Simply, its main role is to take care of the memory stack where the app’s code is stored during execution.
Currently, the feature is under development and is only available for Windows 10 Insider Fast Ring. Users can test their apps with this new protection feature as it will prevent malware from hijacking an app’s code. If your operating system is in the Fast Ring, just add its column in Task Manager and see how it works if any issue arises.
