    REALLY GOOD POST wololo!
    There are too many people who ask if this tiff or this problem is exploitable and I’m annoyed to this many same questions….
    Now, I can link this for the reply xD
    Thanks!

    @PsPLow if the file don’t crash the psp, I think it’s useless.

    These many crashes are very interesting, but i noticed that there are many bugs since version 6.00.I´ve a few files that are corrupted on 5.XX but on 6.XX they aren´t. I don´t know why but that´s very interesting too. (One of my tiff files say on 6.XX “The System Memory is low”).Let´s see what happens. I think it doesn´t take long time until there comes a real exploit

    If i made a crash off a bmp,tiff it would be useless but i have another idea what if we use that same photo from ChickHen or a diffrent version we could put that file as a picture on a music selection.Basicly change the picture a mp3 shows with that image.Im going to test this,hope I dont waste my time.

  10. Roberto says:

    I would ask wololo to test this also plz

    A breakpoint crash can be exploitable. If a stack buffer overrun is detected by the Visual C++’s /GS canary system, a breakpoint exception is raised. If the attacker can guess the canary value, it’s exploitable.
