In November 2022, the U.S. National Security Agency issued a bulletin on RAM handling security. If you look at other NSA bulletins on the topic, you’ll notice that they mostly focus on either data encryption, or production loop protection and other organizational issues. Addressing software developers directly is quite an unusual move for the agency. But since it’s been done, it’s clearly about something particularly important. Basically, the NSA is urging software developers to switch to programming languages whose architecture implies increased safety when working with memory. And in fact, to stop using C and C++. Otherwise, it’s recommended that a set of measures be implemented to test software for vulnerabilities and prevent their exploitation.
