Mona 1.0 released !

After spending almost 6 months of designing, developing and testing, and after ‘surviving’ 2 presentations (at AthCon and Hack In Paris), I am extremely excited and proud to present, on behalf of the entire Corelan Team, the general availability of mona.py.

With this announcement, we also declare pvefindaddr officially dead from this point forward. (This doesn’t mean pvefindaddr is now entirely worthless, because not all functions have been ported into mona yet, but we won’t be releasing any updates to pvefindaddr anymore and the entire project page/download page will eventually disappear)

Exploit notes – win32 eggs-to-omelet

In article 8 of my exploit writing series, I have introduced the concept of egg hunters, and explained what an omelet hunter is and how it works. Today, I want to share with you my own eggs-to-omelet implementation, explain how it works, and how you can use it in a standalone exploit or in a […]

Exploit writing tutorial part 10 : Chaining DEP with ROP – the Rubik’s[TM] Cube

About 3 months after finishing my previous exploit writing related tutorial, I finally found some time and fresh energy to start writing a new article.
In the previous tutorials, I have explained the basics of stack based overflows and how they can lead to arbitrary code execution. I discussed direct RET overflows, SEH based exploits, Unicode and other character restrictions, the use of debugger plugins to speed up exploit development, how to bypass common memory protection mechanisms and how to write your own shellcode.
While the first tutorials were really written to learn the basics about exploit development, starting from scratch (targeting people without any knowledge about exploit development) you have most likely discovered that the more recent tutorials continue to build on those basics and require solid knowledge of asm, creative thinking, and some experience with exploit writing in general.
Today’s tutorial is no different. I will continue to build upon everything we have seen and learned in the previous tutorials. Today I will talk about ROP and how it can be used to bypass DEP (and ASLR)…

Exploit writing tutorial part 9 : Introduction to Win32 shellcoding

Over the last couple of months, I have written a set of tutorials about building exploits that target the Windows stack. One of the primary goals of anyone writing an exploit is to modify the normal execution flow of the application and trigger the application to run arbitrary code… code that is injected by the […]

Exploit writing tutorial part 8 : Win32 Egg Hunting

Introduction Easter is still far away, so this is probably the right time to talk about ways to hunting for eggs (so you would be prepared when the easter bunny brings you another 0day vulnerability) In the first parts of this exploit writing tutorial series, we have talked about stack based overflows and how they […]

Exploit writing tutorial part 7 : Unicode – from 0x00410041 to calc

Finally … after spending a couple of weeks working on unicode and unicode exploits, I’m glad and happy to be able to release this next article in my basic exploit writing series : writing exploits for stack based unicode buffer overflows (wow – that’s a mouthful). You may (or may not) have encountered a situation […]

Exploit writing tutorial part 6 : Bypassing Stack Cookies, SafeSeh, SEHOP, HW DEP and ASLR

Introduction In all previous tutorials in this Exploit writing tutorial series, we have looked at building exploits that would work on Windows XP / 2003 server. The success of all of these exploits (whether they are based on direct ret overwrite or exception handler structure overwrites) are based on the fact that a reliable return […]
