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.
