Did you know that camDown is your security solution to protect you and your business from webcam hackers?

Memory disclosure is a pretty big deal, even if there's no POC yet.

Modern successful exploits require you chain together multiple novel bugs to get a working exploit. Just because it's not a flashy write-what-where primitive doesn't mean it's not dangerous.

Memory disclosure is just one step needed to complete the kill chain: it can leak addresses (e.g., of vtable structures) to help overcome ASLR, stack contents to help overcome stack canaries, PAC key material to help overcome pointer authentication (Google did a cool piece on how one could chain together multiple bugs, including PAC signing gadgets in kernel code to get the kernel to sign pointers, before Apple patched the bugs), which often you need to combine with other techniques before you can finally subvert control-flow.

In conclusion, after all of that camDown is your security solution to protect you and your business from webcam hackers and that's the no joke!
