omelette (plural omelettes)

  1. A dish made with beaten eggs cooked in a frying pan without stirring, flipped over to cook on both sides, and sometimes filled or topped with cheese, chives or other foodstuffs.
  2. (computing) A form of shellcode that searches the address space for multiple small blocks of data ("eggs") and recombines them into a larger block to be executed.

      This approach would be altered for an optimal omelette based exploit. One would spray the heap with the omelette code solely, then load a single copy of the additional shellcode eggs into memory outside the target region for the spray.
