Title: History of Binary Exploitation
Abstract: The history of binary exploitation goes back further than many familiar with computer science are aware. This talk acts as a brief overview of some of the more interesting attacks and defenses implemented over the past four decades in binary memory corruption. From simple stack based buffer overflows, to more advanced attacks, many techniques are discussed at a level high enough that previous experience isn’t necessary, but even an expert might learn something new.
