#IICSG18 Training — Exploit Development for Win32 Platform

by Peter Van Eeckhoutte, Corelan

A fast-paced, mind-bending, hands-on course where you will learn advanced exploit development techniques from an experienced exploit developer. During this course 3-day course, students will get the opportunity to learn how to write exploits that bypass modern memory protections for the Win32 platform. The trainer will share his "notes from the field" and various tips & tricks to become more effective at writing exploits. 
This is not an entry-level course. This is one of the finest and advanced courses you will find on Win32 exploit development. 
This hardcore, practical, hands-on course will provide students with a solid understanding of current Win32 exploitation and memory protection bypass techniques, with a strong focus on the Windows heap.  We make sure the course material is kept updated with current techniques, includes previously undocumented tricks and techniques, and details about the research we performed ourselves. Combined with the way the course is built up, this will turn this class into a truly unique learning experience. 
During all of our courses, we don't just focus on techniques and mechanics, but we also want to make sure you understand why a given technique is used, why something works and why something doesn't work.
We believe those are just a few arguments that make this training stand out between other exploit development training offerings. Feel free to check our testimonials page if you want to see real, voluntary, unmodified and uncensored reactions by some of our students. 
Finally, we offer you post-training support as well. If you have taken the course and you still have questions afterwards, we will help.

Date: 4-6 Apr 2018
Cost: $3,800 SGD

Why Take This Course?

  • Are you familiar with the basics of exploit development? Do you know how to write exploits for saved return pointer overwrites and abuse SEH records with your eyes closed? Do you know how heap spraying works already? Are you now ready for the next step?

  • Have you taken the Corelan Bootcamp training course or other courses on exploit development and want to move to the next phase? 

  • Do you want to learn modern techniques to exploit applications on Windows 7? 

  • Do you want to learn the fine art of writing browser exploits? 

  • Are you able to write ROP chains blindfolded?

  • Are you willing to suffer and bleed, absorb new knowledge fast and not intimidated by debuggers and assembly instructions ...

  • ... then this course is exactly what you need!

Course Contents 

ASLR & DEP Refresher

  • Bypassing ASLR 

  • Bypassing DEP

Heap Spraying

  • Heap Feng Shui & heaplib

  • Precise Heap Spraying in Modern Browser

Browser Exploitation (IE)

  • DOM Fundamentals

  • Heap Fundamentals

  • Exploiting Browser Use-After-Free Conditions

  • Memory Leaks / Information Disclosure

  • Heap Overflows, Heap Manipulations & Primitives

During this course, students will get the opportunity to work on real vulnerabilities in real applications, use exploitation techniques that work on current Operating Systems and most importantly learn how to do your own research to find exploitation primitives in complex applications and new versions of Windows. 

Target Audience

Pen-testers, auditors, network/system administrators, reverse engineers, malware analysts, developers, members of a cybersecurity department, cybersecurity enthusiasts, or anyone that has a solid and practical basic knowledge of exploit development for Windows already. 

Knowledge & Attitude Prerequisites

Students should: 
  • Be able to read simple C code and simple scripts.

  • Truly master all basic concepts of exploit development, as listed in our Foundations course.

  • Be familiar with ROP.

  • Be familiar with writing Python/Ruby/HTML/JavaScript scripts.

  • Be ready to think out of the box and have a strong desire to learn.

  • Be fluent in managing Windows/Linux Operating Systems and with using VMware Workstation / VirtualBox.

  • Be familiar with using Metasploit and writing exploit modules for Metasploit.

  • Be familiar with using debuggers.

  • Have basic knowledge of assembly.

It is imperative for students to comply with these prerequisites.

Technical Prerequisites

Unless specified otherwise, students are required to bring the following: 
  • A laptop (no netbook) with VMware Workstation / VirtualBox and enough processing power and RAM (we recommend 4GB of RAM) to run up to 2 Virtual Machines (VMs) at the same time. The use of a 64-bit processor and a 64-bit Operating System on the laptop will make the exercises more realistic.

  • 2 VMs (Windows 7 SP1, Kali Linux)

Note: You will receive the exact installation instructions after registration, so don't start installing the VMs yet.
All required tools and applications will be provided during the training or will be downloaded from the Internet during the training.
You must have full administrator access to all machines. You must be able to install and remove software, and you must be able to disable and/or remove firewall/antivirus/... when necessary.

About the Trainer

Peter Van Eeckhoutte is the founder of Corelan Team and the author of the well-known tutorials on Win32 Exploit Development Training. The team gathers a group of infosec enthusiasts and researchers from around the world, who all share common interests: doing research, gather and share knowledge, and perform responsible/coordination disclosure. Above all, the team is well known for their ethics and their dedication to helping other people in the community. Together with the team, he has developed and published numerous tools that will assist pen-testers and exploit developers, and published whitepapers/videos on a wide range of infosec topics (pen-testing tools, (malware) reverse engineering, etc.). The team also moderates a forum that provides a platform for people who want to talk about exploit development and operates an IRC channel ( Peter Van Eeckhoutte is the founder of Corelan Team and the author of the well-known tutorials on Win32 Exploit Development Training, available at freenode, channel #corelan). 
Peter has been an active member of the infosec community since 2000 and has been working on exploit development since 2006.
He presented at various international infosec conference (including Athcon, Hack in Paris, DerbyCon, ISSA Belgium) and taught various Win32 Exploit Development courses at numerous places around the globe. He trained infosec enthusiasts and professionals from private companies, government agencies, and military organisations.
