comment Secure and fast communication between 2 VM's
@Jdeboer You need to develop a threat model so you know exactly what you want to protect against. Ok, you are using cloud instances. In that case I would encrypt the data instead of relying on the service provider for anything. Many databases like MySQL offers connections over SSL. Is that an option?

comment Fomat String vulnerability used to display data outside the function stack frame?
@AbbasJavan Think about what a stack frame actually is. In x86-speak, it is the part of the stack between the esp and ebp. You can still read from outside the stack frame.
