Buffer Overflow Attacks
A buffer overflow, or overrun, is an anomaly where a program writes data to a buffer beyond its boundary, overwriting adjacent memory.
Malformed inputs can trigger overflows and cause erratic behavior, memory access errors, incorrect results, and crashes.
Exploiting buffer overflows is a security exploit, allowing malicious code or data to be written and gain unlimited access to resources.Back to Glossary
