WHAT IS A BUFFER OVERFLOW ATTACK AND HOW TO PREVENT IT?
A buffer overflow happens when data exceeds the memory’s buffer capacity. During a buffer flow, a program throws data outside the buffer. This process crashes the program and corrupts data. Attackers know it, and the buffer overflow exploits techniques an intruder uses depending on the operating system and architecture being used by their target.
