Deep Dive into Dalvik Virtual Machine’s JIT Implementation – Infiltrate 2018

During this presentation at Infiltrate 2018, VerSprite’s Director of Security Research, Ben Watson, takes a deep dive into the Dalvik Virtual Machine’s JIT implementation and how it can be used and abused to execute shellcode.
