utf-8 shellcode [Jul. 14th, 2004|10:56 am]

There's a great article in Phrack 62 about shellcode encoded as valid UTF-8 so you can exploit applications which process XML.

Crazy.

That's x86 shellcode. I love that they don't even bother to spell out what processor they're coding for; it's just taken for granted.

The good thing about this CPU monoculture is that it makes me feel so much safer running my oddball PowerPC =)
