Intro to Linux exploit development - Part 1

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this course we will be teaching basic exploit development on a linux os. If you haven't used gdb or done much reverse engineering, this class will be a good introduction. We will be looking at some old school attacks, showing you why they are a problem, and writing some basic exploits from scratch.

This course will consist of both lecture and hands on exercises, so please bring your laptop with your favorite VM player.
