Alphanumeric Shellcode Generator for ARM Architecture
Shellcode usually refers to a piece of code that is injected into a program in order to perform some malicious actions. For any processor, the set of instructions that consist only of alphanumeric characters is generally limited is size. Therefore it is non-trivial to construct shellcode that consists of only alphanumeric bytes. There exist a number of exploit tools that automatically translate non-alphanumeric shellcode into semantically equivalent alphanumeric shellcode for x86 architecture. To the best of our knowledge, there are no such tools available for ARM architecture. We report on our progress in developing a tool for automated generation of alphanumeric shellcode for ARM architecture.
