" Open-source team fights buffer overflows By Robert Lemos, CNET News.comBecause of copyright, we can't reproduce the whole article. The original article is on the news.com website, however. This is from Theo's talk he gave at this years CanSecWest in Vancouver. It was a great talk, hopefully the material will be online. Very cool stuff afoot in 3.3 and -current, keep your eyes peeled.
The OpenBSD project hopes new changes to its latest release will eliminate "buffer overflows," a software issue that has been plaguing security experts for more than three decades."
Update deRaadt's slides from CSW03 are online on the OpenBSD papers site . Look forward to the audio being available on the CanSecWest site , hopefully soon.
