In computer security, heap feng shui is a technique used in exploits to facilitate arbitrary code execution.[1] The technique attempts to manipulate the layout of the heap by making heap allocations of carefully selected sizes. It is named after feng shui, an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics that involves the selection of precise alignments in space.
