Object-code Buffer Overrun Evaluator definition

security, programming, tool
(OBOE) A tool by R. Banfi, D. Bruschi, and E. Rosti for the automatic detection of buffer overflow vulnerabilities in object code. OBOE can be applied to operating system components as well as ordinary application programs. It was designed for the system administrator to identify vulnerable programs before they are exploited. Being automatic, OBOE can be run as a background process for the analysis of all potentially insecure programs installed on a Unix system. It runs on HP-UX, Linux, and Sun Solaris.
