"security vulnerabilities" section[edit]

Some of the sentences in the "security vulnerabilities" section are incoherent, others are just wrong. For example, a stack overflow is nothing like a buffer overflow, despite the vague note about them being "similar". I'll clean it up when I get a moment. Just thought I'd make a record of it here for now. 86.128.230.251 (talk) 22:51, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

I've restructured and improved the page a bit. I changed "security vulnerabilities" to "memory errors" because some of them are not exploitable. --Crashie (talk) 13:37, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
