Flash NULL pointer + offset code execution . . .

I tend to agree - Mark Dowd is clearly not human: http://www.matasano.com/log/1032/this-new-vulnerability-dowds-inhuman-flash-exploit/

This kind of thing makes me want to like . . . go work on cars or something. :)

So here's what's sort of scary about Mark's paper and mentioned in the Matasano post - but worth reiterating here . . . this paper could usher in a new era of reliable exploitation for Flash based vulnerabilities. 
Sort of like what Skylined did for IE exploitation using Javascript based heap spray . . .

Harsh times . . .
