While buffer overflow problem has been known for a long time, it continues to present a serious security threat. Many solutions to the notorious problem were proposed. However, they had their own drawbacks. This paper presents a solution called API invocation fingerprint detection (AIFD) to eliminate overflow vulnerability with very low performance penalty. The solution is API-hook-based, which does not require compiler extensions or operating system kernel patches. Unlike other API-hook-based… CONTINUE READING
