Learn about the pwn CTF category: finding and exploiting vulnerabilities in programs running on remote servers.
Binary exploitation can be intimidating, but the meeting will be walking through a pwn challenge from pwnable.kr that will introduce new members to the concepts and tools they need to get started. The challenge involves exploiting a buffer overflow, which is one of the most common kinds of vulnerabilities. Depending on a member’s experience level, some may struggle with the challenge more than others. Walk around the room and try to help those who seem to be struggling.
