Address-Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) techniques prevent intruders from locating target functions by randomizing the process layout. Prior ASLR techniques defended against single-target brute force attacks, which work by locating a single, omnipotent system library function such as execve(). These techniques are not sufficient to defend against chained return-into-lib(c) attacks that call a sequence of system library functions. In this paper, we describe the Island Code Transformation… CONTINUE READING
