As a code reuse technique, JIT spraying attack becomes popular on the JITed VM (Virtual Machine) (e.g., Javascript Engine, Flash Engine). Using a bug in web applications, an attacker can reuse the code generated by the JIT (Just-In-Time) compiler, which is used to optimize the performance of web applications. JIT spraying attacks can circumvent DEP and ASLR -- protection mechanisms of modern operating systems. Based on the observation that JIT spraying attack mostly uses the immediate operand… CONTINUE READING
