Ben Livshits and Ben Zorn talk about Nozzle, a new tool to detect heap spraying attacks, a new security attack that significantly increases the exploitability of existing memory corruption errors in type unsafe applications.

Ben^2 give us a quick course on the basics of heap spraying attacks and a demo of Nozzle in action. Nozzle is a runtime monitoring tool that watches the 'health' of your browser and detects attempts of heap spraying attacks. 

The Research in Software Engineering team (RiSE) coordinates Microsoft's research in Software Engineering in Redmond, USA.
