process hijacking

Definition(s):

  A process checkpoint and migration technique that uses dynamic program re-writing techniques to add a checkpointing capability to a running program. Process hijacking makes it possible to checkpoint and migrate proprietary applications that cannot be re-linked with a checkpoint library allowing dynamic hand off of an ordinary running process to a distributed resource management system (e.g., the ability to trick or bypass the firewall allowing the server component to take over processes and gain rights for accessing the internet).
