Investigations of vulnerabilities of select directories of the Linux kernel 2.6.6
"This paper is a discussion of current software security vulnerabilities in the Linux operating system kernel version 2.6.6. An in-depth analysis of buffer overflows attacks was made on specific directories. Commercial software, in particular ITS4 and Fortify Software, were used to scan these directories in search of common routines, such as string handling routines, and libraries that have led to buffer overflows and other exploits in the past. The results from these tools helped to determine the scope of the project and laid the ground work for which directories were investigated further for possible routine exploits"--Abstract, leaf iii.
