    Has any one used or tested BufferShield? Of course on their web site it is impressive. I have seen buffer overflow mentioned a lot but am not sure how much I should worry about them. I have good security and don't know if I have anything to be concerned about.

    If you have a 64 bit capable CPU enable data execution protection for all programs and that will provide buffer overflow protection.

    I tried installing it and it seemed to exhibit Malware type properties to my firewall (Jetico) and did not get along with SSM, subsequently I re-imaged my harddrive.

    The "Malware type properties"- just a subjective perception. More feedback is needed from other users.

    I don't have 64 bit.processor. I also have SSM. So maybe I should stay away.
