- Buffer overflow vulnerability is a widespread and dangerous security problem. Detecting buffer overflow vulnerability has great research value in information security area. This paper proposesa static comprehensive analyticalmethod for buffer overflow vulnerability detection. Firstly, this methodadoptsmany kinds of static detection tools fordetectingthe source codes and producingtheir own detectingreports. Secondly, comprehensive analysis is implemented toevaluatethe reliability weights of detecting tools by training process withdetection results, and further optimize the detection results. This training process can improve the efficiency of discovering buffer overflow vulnerabilities withlower rate of omissions and misstatements.The experimental results show that compared with singlestatic detection methods, the rates of both false alert and missed alert decrease significantly.
