Well, basically there are a whole bunch of security holes in software that we all write where we do not parse inputs. And to top that off, even if you don't have an internet connection, you can still mess up parsing enough to crash your own computer. I have done it so I know it's possible. There was even an old way for mac users to secure their passwords relying on bad parsing, they would put control-alt-delete in their password which would cause a PC using hacker to reboot their computer if they tried to use the password.
