Can you clarify what about that output shows that the crash cannot be exploited? Not doubting, just curious.



Unhandled exceptions can't be exploited in general, because they safely unwind the stack and terminate the application. This crash is just an unhandled exception. By contrast, a segfault (at an address other than NULL) would be more interesting from a security perspective.


thank you sir!
