exodus - vuln-dev - master class
A few weeks ago I had a great pleasure of studying at a week-long training taught by Exodus Intelligence. The Vulnerability Development - Master Class was taught by Aaron Portnoy, Zef Cekaj, and Peter Vreugdenhil. The class had an excellent presentation of two complementary yet unique subjects of vulnerability discovery and exploit development primarily under Windows environment. The instructors are truly masters of their field which was reflected in the great quality and depth of the material.
While it is still fresh in my mind, I would like to share with you some of the notes on the covered subjects, the recommended prerequisites, and tips on how to get the most out of this very intensive training. Read more.
