overburn: The practice of putting more data on a CD than its nominal capacity. From http://www.cdmediaworld.com/hardware/cdrom/cd_oversize.shtml:

Note: See the warnings and discussion about possible damage to a CD recorder as the result of overburning (on the same page).

Almost every CD-R can hold between 660 and 690 Mb DATA but usually the CD-R TotalSpace is physically set to 650 - 659 Mb. The extra space is normally used for the mandatory 90 seconds lead-out area. By shortening this lead-out area, extra DATA can be written to the CD-R. This method of writing a CD-R is called OverSizing or OverBurning.
