Question

Under the von Neumann architecture, a program and its data
are both stored in memory. It is therefore possible for a program,
thinking that a memory location holds a piece of data when it
actually holds a program instruction, to accidentally (or on
purpose) modify itself. What implications does this present to you
as a programmer?
