MaXX (Michel Kaempf ) published Vudo Malloc Tricks in Phrack 57 [29]. The paper could have been sub-titled "How to smash the Heap for fun and profit". The paper documented techniques against libcʼs native Doug Leeʼs malloc and demonstrated the generic unlink() write4 technique against the published vulnerability in sudo-1.6.1-1. MaXXʼs article went on however to document the DLmalloc allocator in great detail.


He is an exploit developer who wrote some good exploits like splitvt < 1.6.5 - Local Exploit, Debian 2.2 - splitvt Format String, dislocate 1.3 - Local i386 Exploit, etc.
