Adobe Prenotification for August 2010

Adobe announced that they will publish an out-of-band update APSB10-17 for a 0-day vulnerability published during Charlie Miller’s BlackHat talk.

Charlie Miller’s BlackHat paper is a result of a collaboration with Prof. Dawn Song from UC Berkeley and a continuation of his fuzzing efforts first revealed at the CanSecWest conference. At the time the tools he used were CrashWrangler and !exploitable, but it seems that BitBlaze, the tool from Prof. Song’s research group provides much better insight into exploitable application crashes.
