Hii, I have seen that package calld "Libsafe" wich should help me avoid "buffer overflow security problem", so I have done
"Pacman -S libsafe" adn install it.
How can I use it now? what make it work when using the risky c libs?
I've never used this - never even knew it was there, actually - but it's nearly three years old, and the website's gone. There's still a freshmeat page, though.
Just thought that was worth mentioning.
Ok I have found a way to use it
and Its rocks :twisted:
It help you avoid using a badly wrriten C program that can cause stack overflow risk.
all that need to do is
then if you want to try it, make a C program that call a function that use strcp (STring copy), for a buffer of 10 char, and give it a 20 chars.
Works like magic :!:
You sure it's safe though? I would be damn wary of using unmaintained security software...
From what I understand, this is "just" a library to catch the more common misuses of C functions like scanf... It does not work with statically linked programs, I think (as it catch library calls). See here.
Excessive showering, grooming, and toothbrushing is not only vain, it wastes valuable coding time.
