Summary : This talk will focus on a mechanism to exploit the Linux kernel for local privilege escalation.
We will start off discussing the internals of the Slab Allocator, followed by an overview of
possible exploitation techniques that we have researched. Lastly, we will end the presentation with
a case study of a 0day exploit for a Linux kernel integer-related vulnerability.
