Both Parent and GP are right in some sense.
My point was you have to know the authentication algorithm, the path choosing algorithm, what a peer group or a router id is and which ones are relevant or irrelevant to a BGP hijacking to be able to actually understand what this is all about.
BGP is not your everyday routing protocol, it's not RIP, that was my point.

How much did they pay this Microshill to spread this FUD?
Microsoft's Windows Vista (released January 2007) and later have ASLR enabled for only those executables and dynamic link libraries specifically linked to be ASLR-enabled
for linux, read:
NX is a CPU feature(quoting wikipedia):
The support for this feature in the 64-bit mode on x86-64 CPUs was added in 2004 by Andi Kleen, and later the same year, Ingo Molnar added support for it in 32-bit mode on 64-bit CPUs. These features have been in the stable Linux kernel since release 2.6.8 in August 2004.
The microsoft version is a tad bit more complicated(no protection in some circumstances):
Windows Defender and Windows Resource Protection: I honestly don't think they're worth anyones time.
Debian uses the "_" character to separate package name and version, they use "-" to separate different words in package name.
And FTR that UAC shit is what we've called su for decades.just to know how much more secure linux is in this context read about the "sudoers file"
