FIX: Visual C++ 2013 can't detect buffer overruns or emit C4789 warnings
However, some buffer overruns aren't caught with all optimization settings by Visual C++ 2013, even if you have installed the Visual Studio 2013 Update 5. No warning C4789 is emitted where the older version Visual C++ 2010 has successfully emitted warning C4789.
Note After you install this hotfix, Visual C++ 2013 can detect buffer overruns and emit the warning C4789 for Release configuration builds (in case /Od isn't used).
