Re:trace Can Find Flaws in Both the Stack and Heap

Security researchers Tiller Beauchamp and David Weston with the
engineering firm Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) have
developed a way to turn DTrace into a rootkit-like, reverse
engineering tool that can be deployed to quickly locate application
vulnerabilities and create exploits.

1. Differents between Reverse engineering & re engineering

2. Reverse Engineering / Forward Engineering

What is latest version of Visio available that can be used with MS SQL Server
2008 database. It should support functionality like

1. Compare Visio Logical Data Model with SQL Server 2008 Database ( like
update command in the MS Visio 2005 Enterprise Architect).
It should support the 'Update changes in the database' and 'detect
changes in the database' features.
2. Forward Engineering with SQL Server 2008 database.
3. Reverse Engineering with SQL Server 2008 Database.

Using Visio 2005 Enterprise Architect, we can not detect the database
changes with/ Update changes to SQL Server 2008 database. We tried to connect
to 2008 database and we get the following error

'The currently selected Visio driver is not compatible with the data source'.

We are using following software
1. Microsoft office Visio for Enterprise Architects (11.4301.6360) 2.
Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition 10.0.1600.22 3. Operating System is
Windows XP.
