My Buffer Overflowesth

There I was,  looking for a video on the glibc malloc implementation (more about that adventure in the next post) and whilst the most promising clip I found was unfortunately in Japanese (and, it has to be admitted, this is about as much as I currently understand about this topic :-)  --- I came across a gentleman on the sidebar who posted a nifty video series about buffer overruns,  and who has a good way of explaining the problem.

So much for productive procrastination ;-)
