For user space debugging: Valgrind would be the best tool (for checking memory leaks in user applications).
For Kernel space debugging: Enabling Kmemleak for checking memory leaks in kernel space memory allocations.
And of course we can go with gdb debugger also.

Valgrind is the best option to find out memory corruption.

Along with Valgrind, you can use static analyzer like scan-build which will show the places where memory leaks or corruptions can happen.
