LXer: Interview with the Vista Pwn2Own contest winners

Published at LXer:

Nate: The flaw you discovered was in Adobe Flash, was this truly a cross-platform attack? Shane: Yeah, thereís a stack issue, where a type is accepting 3 parameters when it is defined to accept 2, possibly some polymorphism/name mangling bug, but either way, this object getís called through the 3rd invalid/uninitialized memory that winds up jumping wherever we had pre-filled memory to. Nate: So then, do you have exploit code for all three of the operating systems, or are you certain that you couldíve written exploit code given enough time?
