Dear All,

Execution Flow Control (EFC) is available for download at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/efc/

What is EFC?

EFC monitors the execution of a program by observing system calls made
by the program. EFC generates a database for each program describing its behavioral model. The moment request for execution of a program is
made, kernel also loads program's behavioral model into the memory.
Each request by a program is compared with model data base, if request
agrees with model it is permitted else program is killed.
EFC is a kernel module, and woks on Linux only.

Sincerely

Bal

Hi Bal,

Although I appriciate ideas to enhance security concerning buffer overflows or format string bugs, i cannot understand why to find
the following lines in etc_db_new.c including your package:

<snip>
char pwd[MAX_PATH_LEN];
...
i = 0;
while((ch = fgetc(strace_file)) != '\0') {
  pwd[i] = ch;
  i++;
}
...
</snip>
Haven't found any made borders. And yes, due to its permissions it won't let people become root ... it is just a cosmetic failure. (hopefully) :)

Moreover, and that is the actual reason for replying your mail ...
I couldn't find the patch in $EFC_PATH/efc/ ... did I just download a non complete package?

Regards,
Matthias Stiller
