    That is memory overflow, newbie_grg asked about underflow. Memory underflow can for example happen if you try to access a structure which does not exist.

    For example:

    Code:
    void function (datatype *my_data)
    {
        if (my_data)
        {
            int var = my_data->variable;
        }
        else
        {
            // underflow situation
        }
    }
