Buffer Overflow is the consequence of a vulnerability in computer software. It is used by attackers to overwrite memory bounds, to crash the code and even to inject malicious code – the so called payload.

In this video tutorial, I’m reverse engineering my demo code with Immunity Debugger to show you how memory is processed in the stack. Watch to learn which processor registers are involved while executing a program and how the stack can be exploited.
