OSF/1 Buffer Overrun?
From: pokee () MAXWELL EE WASHINGTON EDU (Aaron Spangler)

I am looking for some sample buffer overrun code for a DEC
Alpha running on OSF/1.  I think I may have found a
potential buffer overrun, but the only way to rule it out
is to try to fill the buffer and see if I get a shell.

(I think it is another case of strcpy instead of strncpy)

Has anyone written or come across code for an Alpha?
(I have overrun code for HP & Solaris boxes, but I know
nothing about Alpha Assembly; Doesn't seem as friendly as
the PA-Risc chip.)

Thanks for all your help.
