Yes, I am aware of the JVM and the Flash AVM heap spray techniques, no
DEP/ASLR there... But as you said, so far there's no known "catch-all"
technique against IE8.
Along with other security features (

this basicly means that IE8 is the most secure web browser nowadays?

Depends. IMHO Non exists the more secure browser, anyway (not exists the
more secure software, never ) . But exists the more secure env on which the
browser run. There are some difference if i run firefox in windows xp and if
i run run firefox within a selinux guest account under Fedora.

I'm not aware of any catch-all technique just for IE8, though there are
a few common ones like return oriented programming. Application
specific techniques are also common when third party extensions are
involved.
