Practical Return-Oriented Programming

At a number of conferences this spring, I am presenting “Practical Return-Oriented Programming.” The talk is about taking the academic and applying it in the real world to developing exploits for Windows that bypass Permanent DEP using my BISC (Borrowed Instructions Synthetic Computer) library.  In the talk, I demonstrate exploitation of the Internet Explorer “Operation Aurora” vulnerability on Windows 7.  These techniques are not at all new, only my implementation is, and it owes much to previous research by Sebastian Krahmer’s “Borrowed Code Chunks” technique , Hovav Shacham’s Return-Oriented Programming, and Pablo Sole’s DEPLIB.
