Issue: Browsers Tend to Crash Each Time an Exploit Is Delivering the Payload to the System...

I am testing a lot of Flash exploits for variouse versions of Flash on Virtual Machines with Windows 7. Id say that 90% of the exploits I tested (on the correct version and correct browser) made the browser crash before the payload could be triggered.

I mainly used IE with versions 8 and 11 and Windows 7 (64bit).

Anyone having an idea or comment about this?
Like... settings... or... I dont know :/

What exact exploits are you using?
What payload are you using?
Double check your options?

If you attempted the CVE-2015-5119 exploit from OTW's article on "How to use Hacking Teams Adobe Flash Exploit" then you may have caused a failed exploit attempt which at security focus they say will likely cause a denial of service condition.

So if you did do a failed exploit attempt then i assume you're causing a DOS for the browser. However I never tried the exploit so this is me guessing.
