In this blogpost I present several novel techniques I used to exploit a 0-day double-free bug in hardened Linux kernels (i.e. KernelCTF mitigation instances) with 93%-99% success rate. The underlying bug is input sanitization failure of netfilter verdicts. Hence, the requirements for the exploit are that nf_tables is enabled and unprivileged user namespaces are enabled. The exploit is data-only and performs an kernel-space mirroring attack (KSMA) from userland with the novel Dirty Pagedirectory technique (pagetable confusion), where it is able to link any physical address (and its permissions) to virtual memory addresses by performing just read/writes to userland addresses.
