Memory corruption vulnerabilities occur when the contents of a memory location are modified, due to programmatic behavior that exceeds the intention of the original programmer, or program/language constructs. This type of programming error can lead to program crash or to strange and bizarre program behavior. This course teaches how to identify, test, and exploit these vulnerabilities.
On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify common memory corruption vulnerabilities
- Test for buffer overflows
- Exploit known memory corruption vulnerabilities
- Identify advanced techniques for finding memory corruption vulnerabilities
