ASLR (Address Space Layout randomization)  is disabled in MirandaNG executables.
This is potentially serious security flow which opens a door for numerous attacks, especially when Miranda is on inet 24/7.

Developers - please add this compilation option to all projects:

/DYNAMICBASE (Use address space layout randomization)
