C++ in Kernel Drivers (c++, boost, std)

Recently i was looking for another approaches how to use c++ features in kernel mode drivers. I found some references, but no one will fullfill my needs & desires to use also boost & std (at least partially).

Some time ago my friend show me a way how to add mentioned libraries to kernel code, so i decided to do it from scratch, do some minimalistic approach with some kind of ‘manual’ and PoC, and maybe it can be for someone, except myself, usefull.

Callgate to user : nt!KeUserModeCallback & ROP / MDL

Sometimes in kernel developement is needed to process some user mode data. But some of data – structs are internal and not so well documented, and due to this are available functions which work with these structures, but these are often exported just for user mode only. What are options in that case ?

  • user mode component – service / application
  • find kernel mode alternative function – often not exported
  • reverse structure – parse it by yourself
  • nt!KeUserModeCallback

Appendum to “How Safe is your Link ?” – how to fool LFH

Heap overflow bug can potentionaly lead to alter heap in that way, that you can rule on its allocation / deallocation mechanism. Nowdays it is litle bit harder, because you need to fullfill some subset of prerequisities for choosen technique, and it is in more than less case not possible.

This post will describe how to break even LFH trough plugin, custom PoC for IE10 on win8 CP, vulnerable to winXP-8CP backend attack.
