- With the rapid development of computer and related information technologies, risks associated with computer system are increasingly rampant. And buffer overflow vulnerability is still the primary mean used by many hackers to attack soft application especially developed in unsafe programming languages like C or C++, although it has been exiting for two decades. A variety of corresponding defenses has been proposed and hackers also continue to come up with new attack methods to bypass the defense. This article mainly introduces the concept of stack-based buffer overflow and then discusses current main attacks and corresponding defenses based on the stack-based buffer overflow.
