      Writing robust code is always difficult, especially when hackers actively look for ways to crash or exploit your game. Using SAL annotations and the compiler's /analyze feature make it easier to find potential problems in your code. Also, proper use of the secure CRT makes fixing many of the problems easier, and choosing the right compiler and linker switches can substantially mitigate the problems of bugs that don't get fixed. See how a machine gets pwned, and how these techniques prevent it. This talk covers Windows and Xbox 360, VC++ 2005 and VC++ 2008.
