This post will describe in detail about what exactly is the futex bug, how to exploit the futex bug, and also explains how towelroot works and what the modstring in Towelroot v3 actually do. Following the footsteps of other security researchers, I will not give a full source code to the exploit. By giving enough details, I hope programmers can learn and appreciate the exploit created for this bug. By not releasing the source, I hope this should stop most script kiddies.
