> Is the latest ICS sure for overflow attacks? Yes, it is. But some application may not be secure if not correctly developed ! The application programmer _muust_ take care of many problems the component can't do for him. For example, if your application receive data and buffer incomming data waiting for a delimiter which will never come, then your application is subject to denial of service attack. Your application, not the component !
