A canary is a security mechanism designed to prevent buffer overflow attacks. When a buffer overflow attack occurs, it overwrites more memory than the buffer, or space provided to write, should allow. This becomes problematic when other crucial pieces of information are overwritten, notably a return address, which controls where the computer will go looking for further instructions. A canary can prevent this from occurring.
