Can DeskNow be subject to buffer overflow attacks?

Basically, no.

DeskNow is entirely written in Java, and it inherits all the security benefits of the Java Virtual Machine.

In particular, data and code in a JVM are always clearly separated, and all data bounds are checked.

It is simply not possible to send a 'very long string' to a Java application that overwrites its code with malicious instructions, as it can happen with normal C/C++/Delphi applications.
