Overflow Buffer attack


I get a message saying an overflow buffer attack has been blocked and that it was explorer.exe, and says shellcode injection in defense history. How can I determine if it is a false positive?

Did you modify Explorer in any way (e.g. change your start orb)?

I was installing and unistalling games. Appeared multiple times. Also a while back when I tried to install a game before I got the same message I think.

that means those games are writing into memory areas that they shouldn’t intentionally or intentionally…CIS has caught bugs in many software before using BO code…


whats BO code, and are these buffer attacks detrimental?

Buffer Overflow is a technique frequently used to infect user’s computers. Its also known as drive by download attacks…it is very common and nasty…CIS protects against that…
