I am an under grad student. i need to write a minor term paper on the role of memory management in security, with a focus on MS op sys.It will be centred on Win 98,Me,NT,2K & XP( if possible).I have done a basic course on op sys as part of my syllabus.All I know about is that Win 98&Me may be grouped as akin to each other and WinNT & 2000 may be grouped while XP is probably a diff thing alltogether.
what i am looking for is an overview of the mem models of these op sys along with the inherent security vulnerabilities due to drawbacks in their mem mgt algorithms.The protcetive measures against such vulnerabilities to be taken by a normal user would be a major bonus.obviously icannot hope for a comprehensive reply to my query.So i shall be grateful if i could get pointers to websites which could help me out in this endevour.

Try researching win32, kernal and user modes, (remember that alot of the "win32 API" is undocumented.

Microsoft's MSDN online area might also be worth a look. (the CD is better if your school has access to it.

Other folks may have better links so stay tuned :-)
