So, to start with we have the usual introduction where he explains his experience which is pretty decent to be honest and also what we will learn on the course like vulnerabilities, exploits, buffer overflow and working with scripts.
Under the ‘Vulnerability and Exploit’ section we go through the anatomy of a vulnerability and an exploit, what I liked about this was speaking about what if the target is very careful in opening links and attachments and such, how do we go about looking for a weakness.
We learn how to search for vulnerabilities and exploits using security focus website.
We learn more about metaspoit, fast track and Armitage as well which was good.
Now we are at the reason I took the course, Buffer Overflow.
Start talking about what is a buffer overflow, which is, is an anomaly that occurs, when software-writing data to a buffer overflows buffer’s capacity, which results in adjacent memory locations, being overwritten.
He talks about how to search for a buffer overflow again in security focus.
In the following videos, we get shown different examples of buffer overflows.
