How to break software? - 6

[Guruji]:- User interface attack # 4

Overflow input buffers

·         Exceeding array or structure size will cause a crash

·         How: input long strings or other data beyond “normal” size

Such bugs are more serious in a server or other component that could be exploited to run arbitrary code

User interface attack # 5

Find inputs that interact and test combinations of their values

·         Check to see if integration testing has been adequately performed

·         How to carry out: identify candidate processes that are normally separate, but through some interaction may share a common data structure
