WoW64 Egghunter

Traditional Egghunter An Egghunter is nothing more than an assembly routine to find shellcode somewhere in memory. We typically deploy an Egghunter when there is no more room in our buffer that we can use to initially redirect EIP to. If we are able to load our shellcode elsewhere in process memory, the Egghunter will […]

Hack Notes : Ropping eggs for breakfast

Introduction I think we all agree that bypassing DEP (and ASLR) is no longer a luxury today. As operating systems (such as Windows 7) continue to gain popularity, exploit developers are forced to deal with increasingly more memory protection mechanisms, including DEP and ASLR. From a defense perspective, this is a good thing. But we […]

Offensive Security Exploit Weekend

Introduction I’m excited and honored to be able to announce that Sud0, one of our Corelan Team members, has won the Offensive Security Exploit weekend, an exploiting exercise only available to Offensive Security certified alumni. The challenge was built around a vulnerability in Foxit Reader.  Each participant was pointed to a Proof of Concept exploit, […]

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 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 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 […]

Exploit writing tutorial part 4 : From Exploit to Metasploit – The basics

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 […]

Exploit writing tutorial part 3b : SEH Based Exploits – just another example

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 […]
