Python 3.3 doesn't use address space layout randomization [1] and data execution prevention [2] on Windows. ASLR and DEP make certain kinds of attacks harder. An attacker can't predict the address of functions or globals anymore and DEP helps against NOP sled attacks.

Python's test suite runs fine with DEP and ASLR on AMD64. I see a crash in test_capi and a couple of crashes in test_faulthandler but these don't seem to be related.
