It can also exit on attacks and disable the protection system when too much calls are executed. Stack Shield is a tool for adding protection to programs from this kind of attacks at compile time whitout changing a line of code. Stack Shield uses a more secure protection system than other tool like Immunix Stack Guard. Stack Shield is designed to support the GCC under a Linux Intel 386 class platform.
