Exploiting code: The Future



Hi List

Stack and heap based overflows were the traditional methods of exploiting C/C++ code. then the previously unknown Format string attacks were brought to the communities attention around 2000. Is it likely that in 5 years time or sooner we will be talking about an as-yet unknown form of exploitation or have we exhausted all methods of attacking C/C++ based code/apps?

Mike.
