Technicaltalk: ASAN - Google's memory checker
The less slow memory checker
AddressSanitizer (aka ASan) is a memory error detector for C/C++. In this talk we will present a few use cases and will compare it against valgrind.
AddressSanitizer (aka ASan) is a memory error detector for C/C++. It finds:
* Use after free (dangling pointer dereference)
* Heap buffer overflow
* Stack buffer overflow
* Global buffer overflow
* Use after return
* Initialization order bugs
And it's *fast* so knowing how to use it can be crucial to finding that elusive crasher.
