What is a buffer overrun? Below is an excellent, yet brief, description of buffer overruns, which I found on the Microsoft bloggers feed on http://weblogs.asp.net. I do a demo of a buffer overrun in the Essentials of Application Security session, one of two I’m presenting at numerous locations in the eastern US. One of the things I find quite surprising is the relatively high percentage of C++ programmers in the sessions, and even more so, the relatively low percentage of them who’ve actually seen what a buffer overflow looks like. The fact that it’s so easy to code a buffer overflow makes me very glad that I use managed code. Now all I need to do is make sure that I’m not vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks (use stored procedures and good input validation) or Cross-site Scripting attacks (use good validation, and HTML encode all input before echoing it back to the browser).
Buffer overrun attack is a very common attack utilized by hackers. This type of attack is not new. This attack utilizes poor coding practices in C and C++ code, with the handling of string functions. The following code is an example of a buffer overrun.

void myMethod(char * pStr) {

char pBuff[10];
int nCount = 0;

strcpy(pBuff, pStr);
}

void foo()
{
}
Cause: The input pStr is of an unknown size. The string copy is unsafe. If the string (pStr) is greater then 10 characters, then the buffer (pBuff) starts to bleed into nCount and the method foo. The buffer overrun property exploited would allow for the execution of foo by manipulation of the application input.

Solution: There are three main actions to resolve the problem. First is to utilize the /GS compile option. This option creates a cookie between the stack overrun and the return address. This allows the system to helps prevent buffer overruns, by changing the stack layout. The second action is to use the <strsafe.h> library. This library has buffer overrun safe functions that will help with the detection of buffer overflows. Finally, the last action is to perform extensive code reviews of string functionality and indexes utilized within your application.


NOTE:
This is a description of buffer overruns from a programmer's perspective...I don't have the ability to troubleshoot “buffer overrun” error messages in your programs, so if you ask, that's the answer you'll get. Error messages in programs are best addressed to the product support folks for the program in question.

Hi,

I think you may have an add-on that is crashing IE. Can you get into IE at all? If so - click on Tools >> Manage Add-Ons and disable any add ons. IE 7 also has a "no add-ons mode" which you can get to via Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and then click on Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

Scan your PC with some ad-aware removal tools. Ad-Aware & Spybot. You can download them on another computer and save them to a disk or USB drive. It might also be worth checking Control Panel >> Add/Remove Programs to see if there's anything in there that shouldn't be.

My personal recommendation is to use Firefox in future. But make sure you scan and fix the problem, and then Immunize, with Spybot first.

Hope this helps

When I try to open Call of duty it apperas the error 998 and the message buffer overrun detected


Any time I've seen this error appear when playing a game it is caused by a bad graphics driver. I would suggest going to the website of the retailer that your graphics devices comes from and updating to the most recent driver and giving it a shot.

Many different things can cause buffer overruns. This is a common attack that hackers use to exploit bad C code. In this case, since it's a video game...I'm going to say graphics driver.

You can actually see an example of the same behavior here:

A buffer is a place to store data. You have a buffer overrun when to much data is sent to that place. It is used a lot by people who write virus programs and try to start a virus. It would be a good idea to check your entire drive for virus. The above link explains the same thing.
