On November 16, 2015, the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar entitled “Buffer Overflows-Wreaking Havoc with Stack Corruption ”. This webinar explained in detail how a buffer overflow vulnerability is exploited through manipulation of the run-time stack that is used to support program execution.
The webinar was presented by James Antonakos who is a State University of New York Distinguished Teaching Professor of Computer Science at Broome Community College, in Binghamton, NY, where he has taught since 1984. Antonakos is the designer and director of the new 2-year AAS Degree in Computer Security and Forensics at Broome Community College. James is the author or co-author of over 40 books on computers, networking, electronics, and technology. He is also a fellow at the National Cybersecurity Institute.
