Live Code Security Audit

If you're curious in how to find software vulnerabilities that are the basis of kernel exploitation, then watch Dr Silvio Cesare perform a live code review of a subsystem in the Linux kernel.

The Linux kernel is written in C and sees classic software bugs such as buffer overflows, integer wraparounds, and memory corruption. The expectation is that within 90 minutes, a vulnerability or several will be found.

The resulting bugs will be reported to the Linux kernel security team.
