    Bo:Heap Explorer

      I am having an issue one of our departments is trying to access a site called xatanet.net and when they log into the site they are receiving the BO:HEAP Buffer OverFlow Protection this always happens when they try to run reports on this site the message will point to one of these locations C:\program files\Internet Explorer\explorer.exe::recv and sometimes C:\program files\Internet Explorer\explorer.exe::send. Our company is using explorer 7.0 and Mcafee Virus Scan 8.0 patch 13 any help or suggestions would greatly appreciated. Thx

          In my oppinion there are two things you can do:
          1. contact the site administrator and notify them of this buffer overflow. changes are that the site developer has used code that causes a buffer overflow.

          2. exclude BO:Heap from detection in VSE8.0 but i wouldn't advise it cause this will exclude loads of other buffer overflows from detection. Buffer overflows that you want to detect.


          Edit: what I just thought of, try to install the latest patch (15 or 16). mayby it's a bug that's been fixed in these patches.

            I installed patch 15 on 2 users and it seem to have done the trick I will install this on the rest of the department this afternoon if no issues arise. Thank you for the adivce
