I have been hearing this word the whole day long. Can any one give me a brief intro? How does it differ from ASLR?
I've recently been learning about how ASLR (address space randomization) works on Linux. At least on Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, there are two kinds of executable programs: Position ...
I was wondering if anyone could give me some clues on how "leaking pointers" to bypass DEP/ASLR work. I read here: The only way to reliably bypass DEP and ASLR is through an pointer leak. This ...
I know all about how ASLR works, and how it has been implemented on both Linux and Windows systems. It provides an extra layer of protection that malware has to take into account. But nowadays with ...
