How to break software? - 10

[Guruji]:- User interface attack # 12

Force a data structure to store too many or too few values

·         The overflow/boundary check problem for arrays or data structures

·         Even dynamic structures like lists or stacks have upper bounds

·         How to conduct : Read/write beyond size of allocated array or data structures

User interface attack # 13

Investigate ways to modify internal data constraints

·         More general form of previous attack; rather than concentrate on overflowing size, investigates violating any constraint (e.g. dimension, location on screen, etc.)

·         How to conduct:  Look for constraints and see if there are any ways to access ways to violate them
