Meeting Notes - 3/7

Zander Work


Thanks to Kees Cook for an awesome look at kernel security! Kees talked about how the kernel exploit for CVE-2017-7038 was discovered, which allowed privilege escalation due to a heap overflow.

You can see his slides here, which also has information for building the POC images for the exploit.

This was our last meeting for Winter 2019, so I’ll see you all next term! Our first meeting will be on Week 2.
