Bypassing Intel CET with Counterfeit Objects

10 June 2022 at 00:00
Since its inception in 20051, return-oriented programming (ROP) has been the predominant avenue to thwart W^X2 mitigation during memory corruption exploitation. While Data Execution Prevention (DEP) has been engineered to block plain code injection attacks from specific memory areas, attackers have quickly adapted and instead of injecting an entire code payload, they resorted in reusing multiple code chunks from DEP-allowed memory pages, called ROP gadgets. These code chunks are taken from already existing code in the target application and chained together to resemble the desired attacker payload or to just disable DEP on a per page basis to allow the existing code payloads to run.
