Video Description

In this lesson, participants receive a demonstration of a classic buffer overflow attack. The goal of a buffer overview attack is for an attacker to deploy arbitrary code onto a users machine and take it over, accessing the person's information. In this demo, Kali Linux is the attacker machine and the victim's machine is a Windows XP. Using the vuln function, bytes are copied and a buffer overflow is created and a root shell on the box is the final goal. Participants learn how to create this using pre-staged code in the Python programming language.
