StackGuard is a compiler approach for defending programs and systems against "stack smashing" attacks.
Programs that have been compiled with StackGuard are largely immune to stack smashing attack.
When a vulnerability is exploited, StackGuard detects the attack in progress, raises an intrusion alert, and halts the victim program.
