The Anatomy of an Exploit

By Patricia Aas

Security vulnerabilities and secure coding is often talked about in the abstract by programmers, but rarely understood. In this talk we will walk through a simple exploit, how it’s developed and how it’s used. The goal is to try to get a feeling for the point of view of an "attacker", and to slowly start looking at exploitation as another programming tool. We will mainly be looking at C and x86_64 assembly, so bring snacks.
