Buffer overflow attack on YouTube! TGIF!

Happy Friday everyone!

Just when you think the "Awareness vs. Policy" debate can't get any more entertaining, I saw a great example of security awareness in the wild that shows people are really starting to get the message.

In The Cleveland Show, Season 1 Episode 16, Cleveland Jr. uses a buffer overflow to hack into the YouTube file system, and then a backdoor to bypass the criminal investigation database authentication. Pretty sweet.
