client is not using memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memmove,  memset  -
     memory operations on data submitted to client's tcp/ip send function

I think that the buffer of send() is not end with '\0' character. if you copy the buffer to an other buf and the and of the buf is '\0'. I'sure the it is well for you
