Much of the material presented here is at the bleeding edge of where crimeware is today and where we expect it could go 34 35 tomorrow. S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T) and IronKey, Inc. Points of view expressed in this chapter are those of the authors, and do not necessarily represent the official position of the DHS S&T Directorate or IronKey, Inc. Chapter 2. , and are reproduced by permission of Pearson Education, Inc. Gary McGraw In May 2000, Computer Science Professor Greg Morrisett and I wrote a report for the Infosec Research Council Science and Technology Study Group (ISTSG) focused on malicious code.

I strongly advocate educating developers about coding errors by having them use a source code analysis tool. The big list below takes the following form: 43 44 Kingdom • Phylum. 3. The Phyla 1. Input Validation and Representation • Buffer Overflow. Writing outside the bounds of allocated memory can corrupt data, crash the program, or cause the execution of an attack payload. • Command Injection. Executing commands from an untrusted source or in an untrusted environment can cause an application to execute malicious commands on behalf of an attacker.

Extensibility A third trend enabling malicious code is the degree to which systems have become extensible. An extensible host accepts updates or extensions, sometimes referred to as mobile code, so that the functionality of the system can evolve in an incremental fashion. For example, the JavaScript plug-in architecture of web browsers makes it possible to run client-side AJAX code, extending the capability of the browser. Today's operating systems support extensibility through dynamically loadable device drivers and modules.
