Much can be caused by corrupted binaries: when a binary is corrupt, then
segfaults, bus errors, and security vulnerabilities are all possible.
However, since unaligned accesses often cause bus errors, too, my guess
is that it's quite a bit more likely for a SIGBUS to be caused by
programmer error than a corrupted binary...
