Hello All,

I am having a really hard time understanding how an overflow is possible in memory  and what happens with the different segments when a buffer overflow occurs. I am also having problems understanding what happens to the ESP when a POP or PUSH operation happens.

Can anyone shed some light?

Thanks!
