Project Heapbleed

I recently presented a talk on heap exploitation abstraction at two conferences, namely ZeroNights 2014 (Moscow, Russia) and BalCCon 2014 (Novi Sad, Serbia). The talk titled “Project Heapbleed”, collected the experience of exploiting allocators in various different target applications and platforms. The talk focused on practical, reusable heap attack primitives that aim to reduce the exploit development time and effort.
