Root Access via Hardware Exploit

I am following the Blackhat 2018 conference and saw this video. It’s amazing. Granted, it was on an older CPU, but it’s a proof of concept.


I fucking love this dude. Seen his sandsifter talk. He’s doing God’s work lol.

Yes, he is truly gifted. Example: “I have no idea what the instruction set is for this processor, so I’ll just write machine code to examine register changes and then infer what the primitive instruction set is.” What??? Who thinks of things like this??? He’s also a great speaker and knows how to present info.
