I remember reading somewhere in the Bug Reports section that Buffer Overflow Protection/Detect shellcode injections functionality was removed starting from CIS 5.x onwards. Has it been fixed for current CIS 10? And if yes, is there any safe way for triggering a buffer overflow alert from CIS? Just out of curiosity, thanks.
The consequence of buffer overflow attack, which is now increasingly difficult with latest protection added by OS, is execution of a program, script / application.
CIS is designed to protect against all such consequences.
Thank you Umesh for the explanations. I was just wondering since BO detection option is still available at Advanced Protection settings and even got its wording changed recently, but like you said CIS already cover all of its consequences (and does an excellent job at it).
