We are trying to study the buffer overflow attacks and their defenses, and 
found that the same buffer overflow exploit works for vulnerable programs with 
strcpy() does not work on gets(). We try to identify the reason and study the 
source code. We can find strcpy() on glibc but cannot find gets() there.
Where can we find the dangerous gets() source code in gnu software package for 
Linux distribution such as Redhat?
If this is not the right mail list to ask, please help direct us to the right 
maillist or news group. Thanks.
