    wsprintf and buffer overruns

    While looking up the definition of wsprintf on msdn.com suddendly I saw a notice about possible security problems with buffers overruns. I tried finding out more information about this online but couldn't find any. Can anyone point me to some good resources on this topic? Or share some information? Thank you.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
