  • Story Type: News Story
In this paper we are going to describe a kind of vulnerability that is known in the literature but also poor documented. In fact, the problem that is going to be analyzed can be reduced to a memory adjacent overwriting attack but usually it is obtained exploiting the last null byte of a buffer, hence we are going to show that the same result is still possible writing behind a buffer, under certain conditions. To fully understand the subject of this article it's necessary to describe the memory organization1 of running processes, then the memory adjacent overwrite attack, concluding with our analysis.

You know the outcome. Over $612 million slid from RIM's checking account into NTP's. Everybody picked sides, based largely on principle... or BlackBerry ownership. But once you've read the patents for yourself, you may find yourself switching sides.

Sharp Zaurus SL-C3200 PDA with 6GB HDD

There was once a time when Sharp was a cutting-edge producer of PDAs, and the company's Zaurus was a market leader. But as the market has matured (and declined), the Zaurus line has devolved into little more than a pocket dictionary, giving it something of a second life in countries like Japan and Korea, where such products are still popular, but continuing to marginalize it as a portable computer. Still, the latest Zaurus, the SL-C3200, does have a few nice features, including a 6GB hard drive, SD slot and 3.7-inch VGA touchscreen display.
