Zhenpeng Lin

I am a second-year PhD student from the College of Information Science and Technology at Pennsylvania State University. I am fortunate to be advised by Dr. Xinyu Xing. I received my B.S in Cybersecurity from Xidian University in 2018. I was a core member of the CTF team Nu1L.

My Research interests include vulnerability discovery and exploitation.

I am very active in “hacking” the world, I found critical vulnerabilities causing remote code execution (RCE) and local privilege escalation (LPE) when I was an intern at Chaitin: CVE-2017-8187, CVE-2017-8188, CVE-2017-8190, CVE-2017-8191, CVE-2017-17223, CVE-2017-17221, CVE-2017-17222.
