Exploitation Advancements [PDF]

For over forty years the computer industry has been engaged in a cat and mouse game of defensive and offensive techniques and countermeasures. Traditionally, the offensive side almost always has a technological and time advantage. Exploits are among the primary tools of the offensive side. An exploit is typically a piece of software, or some logic used by an attacker, which takes advantage of a bug or behaviour in the targeted software or hardware. Use of the exploit allows the target to be manipulated in ways unintended by the designer. This manipulation can in turn allow security bypasses, such as executing arbitrary code when only strict program interaction was intended or extracting sensitive data without authentication.
