The InfoSec Institute Expert Hacking course provides an in-depth and hands-on review of the most current exploit development strategies and techniques for the Microsoft Windows platform.
This course is designed to provide a hands-on, interactive learning experience. To the end, the course includes approximately 30 minutes of lab work after each hour of lecture and Q&A time. Lab sessions are generally run four times per day.
The lab sessions are a crucial learning component of the class, and are strongly recommended. The labs ask students to reverse engineer sample programs as well as real production software to discover vulnerabilities. In addition to static analysis methods, various runtime vulnerability discovery methods such as fuzzing and runtime analysis in a debugger will be used.
Later exercises demonstrate more advanced concepts and tools – such as exploiting SafeSEH, the new ASLR protections found in Vista and Windows 7, and many others.
