ELF binaries containing pointers to .dtors
Date: Thu Sep 07 2006 - 14:35:19 CDT
I'm messing around with the vortex wargame on pull the plug (pulltheplug.org/wargames/vortex) and I needed to overwrite .dtors in one of the levels.
I found out that in every ELF (gcc compiled) I found in .data a pointer to the end of the .dtors section.
Why is it there? Simply to make .dtors overwriting easier? :)
Is there a real need for this?
