News: twiz + sgrakkyu book on kernel exploitation
I was browsing amazon.com when I saw this! For a moment I thought that this should be some kind of joke or something but it seems to be true.
The well known and freaking amazing twiz (real name Enrico Perla) and sgrakkyu (real name Massimiliano Oldani) are publishing an entire book on kernel exploitation!!! I honestly cannot wait until July to read it. If you don’t know these guys (for some reason that I have no idea about) here are a few references:
And a lot of more (google it)…
I bet that this book would be my favorite, along with taossa of course. The chapters of the book are:
Introduction Part I: A Journey to Kernel Land Chapter 1: From User Land to Kernel Land Attacks Chapter 2: A Taxonomy of Kernel Vulnerabilities Chapter 3: Stairway to Successful Kernel Exploitation Part II: The Unix Family, Mac OS X, and Windows Chapter 4: The Unix Family Chapter 5: Mac OS X Chapter 6: Windows Part III: Remote Kernel Exploitation Chapter 7: Facing the Challenges of Remote Exploitation Chapter 8: Putting it all Together: A Linux Case Study Part IV: Final Words Chapter 9: Kernel Evolution: Future Attacks and Defense
Ok, enough talking… time to place a pre-order ;)
