Details

This paper is an excellent introduction to how applications and systems are exploited with memory-based attacks (such as buffer overflows and ROP), and the defenses employed to protect them.

The paper itself is here: https://github.com/papers-we-love/papers-we-love/blob/master/security/sok-eternal-war-in-memory.pdf

There's a "Cliffs Notes" version from Adrian Colyer her: https://blog.acolyer.org/2015/11/30/sok/

We will discuss the paper and memory security in general, and enjoy pizza and sandwiches.
