Uaf -

Posted on Sept. 6, 2016

Let's have a look to the code of uaf.cpp:

#include <fcntl.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <cstring>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <unistd.h>
using namespace std;

class Human{
    virtual void give_shell(){
    int age;
    string name;
    virtual void introduce(){
        cout << "My name is ...

The format string bug is one of the oldest bugs/vulnerabilities related to the standard lib. It involves a wrong use of an user-controlled string which is passed to a function that makes use of format strings (usually printf) and hence allows to easily read/write data.

Ascii_easy -

As usual, we have a program: ascii_easy, which has the permissions to get the flag. After a fast reverse-engineering we can imagine that the source code from where it comes from should look more or less like this:

#define MEM 0x80000000

int is_ascii(char c){
    if (c <= 0x1f || c ...

IOLI - crackme0x09

This level adds nothing new to the previous nine crackmes of the IOLI - suite Let's have a look to the function main:

[0x08048420]> pdf @ main
/ (fcn) main 120

Memcpy -

Posted on June 29, 2016

This time we have to test the performance of two different implementations of the function memcpy. This is the code:

// compiled with : gcc -o memcpy memcpy.c -m32 -lm
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/mman.h>
#include <math ...
