    Buffer Overruns...

    Hi people..
    There are alot of security issues with buffer overruns, and memory holes in general. And there's muchos talkos about it... My question is:
    How big is the memory leak, and how does a programmer specify which part of the packet is written to the "illegal" part of memory?

    Thanks in advance...

    I was gettting ready to link the same thing!

    I liked that last issue... some very interesting stuff in there.

    EDIT/DISCLAIMER: Of course... these articles are for educational purposes only... don't misuse the info! I know you already know that, but thats for everyone else. :P

    They have a newer one too that is also pretty good... but deals more with the kernel.
    Same idea though...

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
