    Re: Buffer Overflow

    BOP detections are probably legitimate -

    We have a process for investigating detections to ensure they are not false positives, but in 100% of issues reported and researched to date the detections are legitimate - usually spurred from a 3rd party application engaging in malware-like behavior to accomplish some "neat" functionality.

    The challenge faced by such software solutions is they're not going to work on X64 .


    If you want to investigate whether this report is also a legitimate one and what the cause might be, you should contact Support; and they'll give you details on how to cause a BSOD to occur instead of the BOP Alert. The memory dump is required to research what triggered the detection.
