Research report on using JIT to trigger RowHammer

RowHammer is a problem with some DDR3 in which repeatedly accessing a row of memory can cause bit flips in adjacent rows. However it need to run the customized asm code on target machine to trigger RowHammer, so RowHammer is not easy to be used to attack. We have an idea that try to use script language to trigger RowHammer. If it works, RowHammer will be more dangerous. In order to verify our idea, we analyzed the Java Hotspot, Chrome V8, .NET CoreCLR and Firefox SpiderMonfey.
