Rootkits, Linenoise, Internet Voting, Objective-C Exploits, and More – Latest Issue of Phrack!
Anywayz, the Phrack Staff is back again, with a slightly different editorial, bringing you an awesome collection of articles from several respected hackers and other thinkers. No, we are not going to write a Prophile on our new team. Yes, there are still people who prefer Phrack over media whoring. The world is full of surprises. It took quite some time, but we hope this issue of Phrack will meet your expectations.
Phrack #69 brings you three new technical articles in addition to paper feed and the standard Linenoise, Loopback and International Scenes philes. The Firefox hater code-named argp presents advanced exploitation techniques and attempts to build abstract primitives for taking advantage of various memory-related vulnerabilities on your “favorite” multi-heap browser ;> Huku, some guy who, obviously, visits porn sites a lot, has written an art of exploitation phile focusing on Adobe Flash Player (hey, this is not P0 man!). Last but not least, uty presents a VT-x based technique for installing inline hooks and backdooring a whole system. We have spent much time debugging this, we hope you *do* like it.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
