This paper discusses the exploitation of integer arrays due to lack of calculations to limit the amount of elements added to them. This is a fairly common occurrence in programming today, while somewhat known and understood in character array form, I've never seen it mentioned on the integer level. Expectations for this paper are that you have knowledge of stack based overflows, heap based overflows, memory workings, some knowledge of character array overflows wouldn't hurt, and of course good ANSI C programming experience.
