Title Change Request

Format "Overflow" Exploit? It's not an overflow, it's a Format String Vulnerability. I think you should change this page's name. --Qwertyoruiop 07:28, 21 January 2012 (MST)

Agreed. Nice catch :) --beej 09:33, 21 January 2012 (MST)
Well, I don't know who came up with this name, but we don't know a lot about it yet. Somehow this format string vulnerability must yield to custom code execution, so maybe some stack buffer overflow is involved? This title is only a short form of course. Before renaming it, we should wait until we have some more infos or we get an "official" name from pod2g or i0n1c. -- http 09:45, 21 January 2012 (MST)
