Function Properties

Function exploitation properties convey information about how a function contributes to the exploitability of an application. For example, a function might make it possible to use certain exploitation techniques that might otherwise be prevented if mitigations were present. Alternatively, a function might simply assist in the exploitation process. Function exploitation properties are especially useful because they provide more detailed information than exploitation properties that are derived from the platform, process, or module context.
