Kernel Exploitation-Part 3

Over the last two articles of this series, we have come a long way around kernel exploitation. We started with finding a buffer overflow in driver code to parsing of different structures to steal the token. In the final part of this series, we will combine the whole parts plus provide some finishing touches to complete the exploit.In last part of this

Kernel Exploitation: Advanced

In Part 1 of this article series, we had reverse engineered the driver and identified buffer overflow vulnerability in it. In this part, we will cover the next step of developing the exploit, and for that, we will have to go through various structures and offset. Since this a kernel land exploitation, a typical MSFvenom shellcode will not work.The expl

Windows Kernel Exploitation- Part 1

In this article series, we will learn about kernel exploitation using a driver HackSysExtremeVulnerableDriver built by Ashfaq Ansari. The driver has many vulnerabilities built into it, and we will try and exploit all of them in this series. In this part, we will work on identifying the buffer overflow vulnerability present in the driver and try to expl
