StackGuard 1.2 released
StackGuard is a solution for helping prevent the common stack smashing method of breaking through security. No source code changes are required at all, all the work being done by the compiler and associated programs. When an attempt is detected, alarms are raised and the program is halted. If you like the product, be nice to a Linux friendly company and purchase their CD.
