Please think before talking.
Consider first the conditions necessary to enact a buffer overflow. Consider why and how do these attacks work.

Next think of what type of information is sent/recieved in a communication channel to be tested.

Ask whether or not it is possible (as a thought experiment) to craft a condition that mirrors any that may be used to 
craft an attack.

Research the technologies, try to have an understanding of something BEFORE doing the though experiment or it will fail 

If you don't know, ask a question. Do not just assume or state something without knowing the facts. Asking questions = 
good; making statements with no idea of the truth of the matter = bad.
