Are there other languages besides C* where buffer overflows
seem likely ?  Bliss is quite a low level language but it
statistically is not very susceptible to buffer overflows
because there is little support for null terminated strings.

Buffer overflows in C are not only from strings.
C doesn't check indexes for legality for any kind of array.
