Buffer Overflow Exploit

Buffer Overflow Basicexample

This article describes the digital artifact of a buffer overflow exploit. A buffer overflow is an anomaly where a program writes data to a buffer beyond the buffer's allocated memory. Hackers can utilize this knowledge in the exploit by purposely causing a buffer overflow so that they can overwrite executable code with malicious code or to overwrite data for the program's state so that they can cause different outcomes from the intention of the original programmer.
