I found this very interesting. Ben's blog post on bzip2, showing 13 steps (separate git commits, kind of a tutorial) that were needed to sandbox bzip2: http://www.links.org/?p=1242 Secure Coding list posting also mentioning the work on libtiff: http://krvw.com/pipermail/sc-l/2012/002801.html Secure Coding mailing list (SC-L): http://www.securecoding.org/list/ Alexander
