Welcome to Part 5 of the Exploit Research Megaprimer. Please begin this series by watching Part 1, if you have not already done so!
We will first start by understanding the vulnerability from it’s description on Exploit-Db and then reproduce the same in our lab setup. After this, we will use the Immunity Debugger to examine the exploit conditions, find the offsets for RET and ESP overwrite, find the bad characters which are 0x00, create shellcode for the payload encoding for these bad characters, create the exploit program and finally exploit the program! One of the interesting things you will find in this program is that the RET address and ESP are not adjacent to each other like in the previous examples.
