Heaps and stacks are affected by which of the following attacks?

EXPLANATION

Heaps and stacks are data structures that can be affected by buffer overflows. A buffer overflow vulnerability allows an attacker to corrupt the execution stack of an application by inserting data into adjacent memory locations. This can cause application or operating system instability or, in the hands of a skilled attacker, even allow arbitrary code execution.

SQL Injection is a vulnerability that allows an attacker to query or manipulate a database using user input fields.
Cross site scripting is a vulnerability that allows for an attacker to inject client site scripts into web pages that is intended to be executed by other users.

A ping flood is a method of performing denial of service (DoS or DDoS) against network devices.
