Introduction to Buffer Overflows

[toggle_content title="Transcript"] Hi Leo Dregier here In this module I want to talk about buffer overflows. Now we are going to need to start thinking like machine language, a computer because this is how does a computer store things in its memory and how can we manipulate that process. Now it is basically pretty simply I want you to imagine an ice cube tray, right. This is a modular framework so if you put too much water into one cube, the water flows into another. Well memory sort of behaves in the same thing. But every ice cube is its own application or its own space. So that is the basics now we are going to cover some of the different tools and techniques that you can use and also cover the different types of threats and the different types of software which we can use. But this is a specialized field of study because you realistically now - now you really have to think like a programmer in the sense. So let us go ahead and get started - let us talk about buffer overflows. [/toggle_content] The Buffer Overflows module explores what it it means to think like a programmer and how the device manages resource space issues. The topics explored in the Buffer Overflows module include:
  • Whiteboard, which shows the interrelationship of all the basic components you must master for this module
  • And the following simulation labs:
    • Make, Compile, Run Lab
    • Stack Lab
