Although many defense mechanisms against buffer overflow attacks have been proposed, buffer overflow vulnerability in software is still one of the most prevalent vulnerabilities exploited. This paper proposes a micro-architecture based defense mechanism against buffer overflow attacks. As buffer overflow attack leads to a compromised return address, our approach is to provide a software transparent micro-architectural support for return address integrity checking. By keeping an uncompromised… CONTINUE READING
