note, we discussed this.. oh about 10 years ago at a Usenix security conference!!!
( accessing industrial control equipment, and submitting values WHICH exceed the input ranges of the equipment,
i.e. engineered to take values, say 1-255, what happens when you send -1? 99999? hint, at that
time no one thought any of the related programming had any bounds checking, hopefully some of that
has changed.. )
Geez, amazes me that no one really wakes up to these issues until this happens.
