I am an ASP.NET developer, who has minimal knowledge in Server administration.
I have a database hosted at Windows Server 2008.
Today morning onwards it periodically stops working.
The message given is something to the effect
"The program is being shut down to prevent Data Execution Prevention error"
Some other programs are also showing the behavior.
I would like to know, what causes this all of a sudden?
The server is UN-protected(IE: no anti-virus installed at all), could this be a possible anti-virus/ malware attack?
What do we need to do to get the SOL running smoothly again?
