Attacking the Kernel with Non-control Data Attacks

Tobias Mueller and Stefan Seefeldt

In this talk, an overview of memory attacks will be presented. Particularly, non-control data attacks will be discussed and examples provided. In contrast to traditional attacks, non-control data attacks do not alter the control flow of the kernel but rather manipulate data structures, which makes it both hard to detect and to prevent.
