I'm compiling vulnerabilities and related attacks, and I need to find a famous attack that exploited a use-after-free vulnerability. I've looked for a while though I can't seem to find any. I know there are lots of times use-after-frees were found in internet explorer and other softwares, though I only get pointed to the vulnerability and update pages, and not specific attacks.

  • So, you are looking for a high profile attack that used an exploit for this specific vulnerability? Are you looking for PoCs (there are lots)? Are you looking for CVEs? – schroeder Oct 29 '18 at 23:07
