He is a Metasploit contributor and main developer of the mona.py exploit development swiss army knife. He presented at various international security conferences (Athcon, Hack in Paris, DerbyCon, ISSA Belgium to name but a few) and delivered the Corelan Live Win32 Exploit Development Bootcamp at numerous places around the globe.
He trained security enthusiasts & professionals from private companies, government agencies and military.
This is most certainly not an entry level course. In fact, this is a one of the finest and most advanced courses you will find on Win32 exploit development.
This hardcore, practical, hands-on course will provide students with solid understanding of x86 Windows heap exploitation. We make sure the course material is kept updated with current evolutions, includes previously undocumented tricks and techniques, and details about research we performed ourselves, so you can apply the research techniques on other applications and operating system versions. 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. In the advanced course, we also provide you with insights on how to do your own research related with heap exploitation in general (not just Windows 7 or Windows 10)
The new 2019 edition of the course is based on Windows 7 and Windows 10. (As the Windows 10 Heap Manager contains additional mitigations, we use Windows 7 first to teach the basics, and then use Windows 10 later on)
We believe those are just a few arguments that makes this training stand out between other exploit development training offerings.
Finally, we offer you post-training support as well.
If you have taken the course and you still have questions afterwards, we will help.
WARNING: We do not provide solutions for any of the exercises in this course, but we will help you to find the solutions yourself, either during the course of after the course (via the student-only forum)
Why take this course?
☑ Do you know how to write exploits for saved return pointer overwrites and abuse SEH records with your eyes closed?
☑ Are you interested in understanding how heap spraying works, and why it works?
☑ Is heap exploitation still a mysterious black box for you? Are you now ready for the next step?
☑ Have you taken the Bootcamp or other commercial courses on exploit development and want to move to the next phase?
☑ Do you want to learn modern techniques to exploit heap related memory corruptions on Windows 7 and Windows 10?
☑ Do you want to learn the fine art of writing browser exploits or exploit for other complex applications?
☑ Do you want to learn the skills to investigate heap managers on modern Windows versions (Win7, Win10) and how to look for your own exploitation primitives?
☑ Would you like to know what (generic) questions to ask (rather than being spoon-fed exploit-specific solutions & answers)?
☑ Would you like to know how to approach fuzzing/bug hunting in complex applications, how to recognize and determine exploitability for heap-based corruptions?
☑ Are you involved in malware research or do Incident Response & interested in understanding how exploits work?
☑ Would you like to understand better how to detect exploits and how to protect against them?
☑ Would you like to get a basic view on common development mistakes, how to avoid them and how compiler options can help?
☑ Are you able to write ROP chains blindfolded? (It is fundamentally important that you have practical experience with constructing/writing your own ROP chain!)
☑ Are you willing to suffer and bleed, absorb new knowledge fast and not intimidated by debuggers and assembly instructions…
If you have a strong desire to learn, willing to suffer & bleed, and you can spare € 2,500.00 + VAT for a 4 day course, then register for Corelan's advanced exploit development techniques course that is going to take place on January 27-30 2020 in Athens, Greece.
ASLR & DEP Refresher
Windows Heap Management
Modern userland memory protection mechanisms
Finding your own bugs
Warning: The course has a steep learning curve and will require full attention and focus.
The “Course Contents” on this page is subject to change without prior notice & can be updated between the moment of registration and the actual course. We will try to cover as much as we can from the “Course Contents”, based on the overall ability to absorb knowledge and time needed to complete the exercises, but Corelan cannot ever guarantee that we will be able to cover everything.
Take a deep dive into the fascinating world of heap exploitation and the fine art of memory leaks.
We cover what others don’t.
It’s imperative for students to comply with these prerequisites.
Note: you will receive the exact installation instructions after registration, about a week before class begins, 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.
If you are interested, for the price of €2,500.00 + VAT per person, for a 4 day course, you can join us in one of the most intriguing courses there is.
