exploiting the FreeBSD kernel memory allocator

The new Phrack issue is out at last ;)

My contribution to Phrack issue #66 is an article on exploiting FreeBSD's kernel memory allocator, or UMA - the universal memory allocator. The initial inspiration to work on this subject came to me from signedness.org challenge #3 by karl, therefore I felt it was the right thing to do to add karl as a co-author.

Issue #66 contains in total three articles by Greek authors, Exploiting DLmalloc frees in 2009 by huku and Exploiting TCP Persist Timer Infiniteness by ithilgore in addition to mine. And that's just amazing!
