It should be, if you're using a current OpenSSL release and you're building it properly.

For some time now, OpenSSL's assembly modules have had SAFESEH gubbins wedged into them as necessary. See e.g. the ::safeseh subroutine in crypto/perlasm/x86nasm.pl in the OpenSSL sources.

I just linked a little test program against a library built with OpenSSL 1.0.2g with SAFESEH enabled. No warnings, and dumpbin /loadconfig shows that it has a SafeSEH table.

In your original note you said that you "downloaded and installed OpenSSL 1.0.2g". It's not clear what that means. Are you building using libraries created by someone else?
