Exploit writing tutorial part 5 : How debugger modules & plugins can speed up basic exploit development
In the first parts of this exploit writing tutorial, I have mainly used Windbg as a tool to watch registers and stack contents while evaluating crashes and building exploits. Today, I will discuss some other debuggers and debugger plugins that will help you speed up this process. A typical exploit writing toolkit arsenal should at […]
In the first parts of the exploit writing tutorial, I have discussed some common vulnerabilities that can lead to 2 types of exploits : stack based buffer overflows (with direct EIP overwrite), and stack based buffer overflows that take advantage of SEH chains. In my examples, I have used perl to demonstrate how to build […]
In the previous tutorial post, I have explained the basics of SEH based exploits. I have mentioned that in the most simple case of an SEH based exploit, the payload is structured like this : [Junk][next SEH][SEH][Shellcode] I have indicated that SEH needs to be overwritten by a pointer to “pop pop ret” and that […]
In the first 2 parts of the exploit writing tutorial series, I have discussed how a classic stack buffer overflow works and how you can build a reliable exploit by using various techniques to jump to the shellcode. The example we have used allowed us to directly overwrite EIP and we had a pretty large […]
Where do you want to jmp today ? In one of my previous posts (part 1 of writing stack based buffer overflow exploits), I have explained the basisc about discovering a vulnerability and using that information to build a working exploit. In the example I have used in that post, we have seen that ESP […]
Last friday (july 17th 2009), somebody (nick)named ‘Crazy_Hacker’ has reported a vulnerability in Easy RM to MP3 Conversion Utility (on XP SP2 En), via packetstormsecurity.org. (see http://packetstormsecurity.org/0907-exploits/). The vulnerability report included a proof of concept exploit (which, by the way, failed to work on my MS Virtual PC based XP SP3 En). Another exploit was […]
