Staticly Detect Stack Overflow Vulnerabilities with Taint Analysis
School of Electronic Science and Engineering, National University of Defense Technology, ChangSha, China
Nowadays binary static analysis uses dangerous system library function to detect stack overflow vulnerary in program and there is no effective way to dig out the function which can cause stack overflow issue. List necessarily characteristics of the function which may cause stack overflow vulnerary and define stack overflow dangerous function(SODF). Then introduce static taint analysis to detect SODF include taint introduction, taint propagation and taint checking stragety. Next describe the particular process of detecting SODF in the program with static taint analysis. Finally choose 4 runtime library and 2 binary software, and detect whether the chosen software has SODF and locate the name of SODF with static taint analysis. Testing result shows that the algorithm can detect and locate plenty of SODF in test program which means the algorithm can work efficiently.
