From the newest edition of 2600 magazine: check out the C code below:
I'm curious....why are you posting this? I read 2600 as well but don't feel the need to post "code crashing" selections from it. BTW, I have plently of code written over the years that will crash almost anything, of course it's not intentional ...
Here is more info on this bug.
I heard about it last year on slashdot.
Fair enough. When I something like this I always feel better with an explanation. When it has to do with an interest in the code I think that's fine, on the other hand if it's with the intention of bringing down muliple systems or something like that I get worried....sorry to be a stick in the mud about it.
and i thought i was the only one who read 2600...very interesting stuff in that little book...lol
It's been a while since I have done C programming, what is b??? Backspace?
So it looks like that code writes HUNGUP (6 chars) to stdout and backspaces 7 times. A backwards buffer-overflow, cool!
