About the course

This course will teach you the basics of exploiting a buffer overflow vulnerability. It follows the six stages of exploit development and gives a detailed walk-through of each. Each module starts by identifying the vulnerability via fuzzing. You’ll learn both, protocol fuzzing (using Spike) and file format fuzzing (using FileFuzz). It then shows you how to create a PoC to trigger the vulnerability and convert that PoC into a working exploit.

Through this course you will get introduced to various tools such as Immunity Debugger, Mona library for Immunity Debugger, Metasploit, msfvenom, Spike, File Fuzz and much more. This course is designed to be short and concise yet packed with practical knowledge.

Each video includes learning resources (in video), associated files (pdf slides, fuzzing scripts, python script etc.) and an assignment. You can just follow along and create a working exploit. It’s that simple. Happy learning!

What our fellow students say about this course

  • Course goes from the basics through to what the OSCP teaches you. Highly recommended, still enjoying the material. - Michael Ross
  • Best course I have taken thus far that explains buffer overflows in a way that you can easily try on your own home lab. Instructor is easy to understand, doesn’t rush through the material and explains step - by - step. - William Daugherty
  • Awesome course; clear and to-the-point; very helpful for understanding Buffer Overflow. - Zeeshan
  • This is a very good course, well organized and everything at hand for practicing. I’d just recommend to the instructor to speak a little bit slower next time. Cheers ! - Rodrigo Hierro
  • Excellent course and well taught. Would recommend to anyone interested in BOF - Steve Casey
  • Step by step instructions with resources given, very accurate and to the point. - Alex Paz Soldan
  • Great course he can really simplify the technique to understand easier. Update just finished course and gotta say this is by far the best course i have taken so far in exploit development! Now onto his advanced course - (anonymous user)
  • It’s a good beginning for someone who wants to know more about exploit development. - Ying-Chen Chiou
