Exploit Development: No Code Execution? No Problem! Living The Age of VBS, HVCI, and Kernel CFG

Think Like Git

Sometimes, it is a compiler bug

Issue #227



Sorry for the delayed send out today; had some major issues arise this morning that needed the code equivalent of a swift and well-placed karate chop to the neck.
In my search today, I discovered a video of DOOM being run on something else it wasn't intended to run on. At this point it has become a trope, and one I am going to continue until I find DOOM being run on a potato.
Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely weekend. A company has chosen to sponsor me to write an article for them, where I'll build a mini-project using their tool and discuss it. Pretty exciting for me, probably not not so much for you. But that's what I'll be doing on the weekend. What about you? Oh and here's the issue btw.
