What is a buffer overrun, should i be concerned?

Very rarely i get a 'Buffer Overrun detected' message, which mentions something about a Cyberlink program going corrupt for some wild reason. I never deal with or use anything related to Cyberlink that i know of, at least not directly. I have no idea what the message is about, or what i should do to fix it.

I do MS updates about once a month, and my firewall is on. Am i considered okay?

I don't really know why i would want to update Cyberlink, i don't even know what it is. I don't see anything Cyberlink related in Programs And Features, but i do remember uninstalling something Cyberlink in the past.

I don't think you need Cyberlink. It is some video/photo editing software.

I suggest you run free Malwarebytes once.

BSODs, latest saying "A driver has overrun stacked based buffer"
Hi, My computer has been BSODing as of late. Whenever it BSODs I'd hard reset it and it would BSOD again right away. This would go on for about 3-5 times and then it would be fine and run stable for 4-6 hours with no problems. The latest one said "A driver has overrun a stack based buffer"...
