Title: DYNAMIC ADDITION OF CODE IN SHARED LIBRARIES
Abstract:
Various embodiments include methods for dynamically modifying shared libraries on a client computing device. Various embodiment methods may include receiving a first set of code segments and a first set of code sites associated with a first application. Each code in the first set of code sites may include an address within a compiled shared library stored on the client computing device. The compiled shared library may include one or more dummy instructions inserted at each code site in the first set of code sites, and each code segment in the first set of code segments may be associated with a code site in the first set of code sites. The client computing device may insert each code segment in the first set of code segments at its associated code site in the compiled shared library.
