Buffer Overflow detection and prevention tool from Comodo

One of the most serious and common types of attack on the Internet is buffer overflow attack. A buffer overflow occurs when a program attempts to store more data into a buffer than the space it has allocated in the memory.

The ability to exploit a buffer overflow allows an attacker to over write data to control the program execution path. This allows hackers to access our system remotely by executing his (their) code instead the process code.

Comodo Memory Firewall Constantly monitors the memory space and activity of the installed applicationsto make sure they do not fall prey to buffer-overflow attacks – a favorite and very damaging technique used by hackers to crash your system and steal your confidential information.

Comodo Memory Firewall detects the following types of attack:
  • Detection of Buffer Overflows which occur in the STACK memory,
  • Detection of Buffer Overflows which occur in the HEAP memory,
  • Detection of ret2libc attacks,
  • Detection of corrupted/bad SEH Chains
Installation is simple and default setting is enough to prevent the attack. More details available in the help file included.
Supports Windows Vista (Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) / Windows XP (Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) / Windows Server 2003 SP1 (32 bit and 64 bit versions)
