Libhijack 0.5.1 Released

I absolutely love the nature of opensource: anyone can check your code for errors and patch any bugs. After talking a little with a random developer who's interested in libhijack, he found a bug where I'm accessing a variable after calling free() on it. The fix was simple and he provided a patch for it. I'm releasing version 0.5.1 of libhijack today to fix the bug. It's a minor release. I'd recommend everyone to use this release rather than 0.5 formal.

You can find libhijack at its usual spot on SX Labs.

Libhijack 0.5 Released!

Libhijack 0.5 has been released! This is an exciting major milestone release. The major features in this release include:

Uncached function searching
Hijacking within shared objects

This release has broken two external API calls:


You'll need to pay attention to any code you've written to make sure it still works. The above API calls are completely working, but the function prototypes have changed. I've worked very hard for this release and I hope it's bug-free. I've plugged quite a few memory leaks. Check out the Texts page on's site for the Defcon presentation slides.
