 Memory Hygiene in C and C++

Informit brings us: Memory Hygiene in C and C++: Safe Programming with Risky Data.

"In the abstract, the only things that can go wrong with C and C++ memory management are bad pointers and leaked memory. Pointers might be uninitialized; they might be incorrectly initialized (often to NULL); they might point to memory that's no longer safe to use; they might point to wrong data—frequently mistyped data."
