The Exploit Laboratory: Red Team is an all new intermediate to advanced level class, for those curious to dig deeper into the art and craft of software exploitation. We shall be largely focusing on bug classes and vulnerabilities which are relevant today, on browsers and PDF readers. The focus of this class is to get participants up to speed with memory corruption techniques such as stack overflows, exception handler abuse, in-memory object corruption, vtable overwrites and exploiting use-after-free bugs.
The Exploit Laboratory: Red Team requires a lot of hands on work. Lab examples used in this class cover Linux, Windows and Android platforms, featuring popular third party applications and products instead of simulated lab exercises.
We end the class with a mini "Capture The Flag" contest where you shall put your newly acquired exploit writing skills to test in a near-real-world environment.
As with the popular Exploit Laboratory, all topics are delivered in a down-to-earth, learn-by-example methodology. The same trainers who brought you The Exploit Laboratory for over 9 years have been working hard in putting together advanced material based on past feedback.
NOTE: THIS CLASS MAY BE COMBINED WITH THE EXPLOIT LABORATORY: BLACK BELT AS A 4 DAY COURSE.
DAILY CLASS OUTLINE:
• Memory Corruption Bugs - past and present
• Introduction to systems concepts - OS, processes, functions
• Stack Overflows on Linux
• Stack Overflows on Windows
• Abusing Structured Exception Handlers on Windows
• Abusing Objects in memory - vftable overwrites
• Browser Exploits
• PDF Exploits
• Heap Spraying in browsers and PDF readers
• Use-After-Free bugs - Advanced Browser and PDF exploits
• Red Team members, who want to pen-test custom binaries and exploit custom built applications.
• Bug Hunters, who want to write exploits for all the crashes they find.
• Members of military or government cyberwarfare units.
• Members of reverse engineering research teams.
• Pen-testers, Security analysts, Security auditors, who want to take their skills to the next level and write their own exploits instead of borrowing them.
• People frustrated at software to the point they want to break it!
• Have a working knowledge of operating systems, Win32 and Unix.
• Not be allergic to command line tools.
• Use vi/pico/joe editors.
• Have a working knowledge of shell scripts, cmd scripts or Perl.
• Understanding of C programming would be a bonus.
• SKILL LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE
The Exploit Laboratory: Red Team edition is a fast-paced class. If your concepts are a bit rusty, we have prepared three tutorials that we HIGHLY recommend before coming to the class.
