Buffer overflow detections

When a buffer overflow detection occurs:


  • The scanner blocks the detection.
  • A message is recorded in the On-Access Scan Messages dialog box. View the dialog box, then decide whether to take any of these additional actions:
    • Remove the message — Select the item in the list, then click Remove.
    • Create an exclusion — If the detected process is one that you legitimately use or a false positive, create an exclusion using the information in the On-Access Scan Messages dialog box. Review the information in the Name column to determine the name of the process that owns the writable memory that is making the call. Use the process name to create an exclusion.
    • Submit a sample to Avert Labs for analysis — If the scanner detects something that you think it should not detect or does not detect something that you think it should, you can send a sample to Avert Labs.
