Module: Rex::Payloads::Win32::Kernel::Recovery

Defined in:
lib/rex/payloads/win32/kernel/recovery.rb

Overview

Recovery stubs are responsible for ensuring that the kernel does not crash. They must 'recover' after the exploit has succeeded, either by consuming the thread or continuing it on with its normal execution. Recovery stubs will often be exploit dependent.

def self.default(opts = {})
  spin(opts)
end

.idlethread_restart(opts = {}) ⇒ Object

Restarts the idle thread by jumping back to the entry point of KiIdleLoop. This requires a hard-coded address of KiIdleLoop. You can pass the 'KiIdleLoopAddress' in the options hash.
