Hey I found these really interesting and detailed reads, it certainly presents a new way to escalate privileges on a machine.

The original research.

Very interesting and very scary. Literally un-patchable? :) While looking through this I came across some earlier research along these same lines: https://www.cs.princeton.edu/~appel/papers/memerr.pdf. I wonder if something like this might be possible to do with js? I'd really like to see what this looks like on Windows, too.

Well unless someone figures out how to change the laws of physics :lol:

It is so cool though to think that it is possible to adjust the way memory operates on an atomic level through the use of a program.

Also thanks for the article.
