Summary : Many years ago the Earth was covered in plants, but today the flora and fauna that once ensconced our planet has been succeeded by cables and long pipes. A techno-Jungle known as the Internets has flourished. One thing has remained constant throughout this step in evolution - bugs have evolved and continue to thrive. During this talk you will be taken on a journey through the process of deciphering brief advisories, finding bugs and exploiting them to gain reliable code execution. Various tools will be discussed that can aid in this process and all demos will be performed live.
