The Tweezer Attack was an exploit that involved the use of a pair of tweezers to bridge areas of memory, allowing homebrew code running in Gamecube mode to have access to limited sections of Wii memory in order to map out the rest of the console a small piece at at time.

The Tweezer Attack has been patched against by Nintendo in order to prevent people from reproducing it and obtaining their Wii's private encryption keys.
