Overview

The EC-Council Centre of Advanced Security Training has arrived at Firebrand Training. On this intensive three-day Exploit Development Overdrive course, you will learn how to write your own application exploits.

Warning: This is not a beginner’s course. It's highly-technical, with many hands-on labs. The course is right for you if you're an: experienced security professional, penetration tester, researcher or application developer.

You will learn how to:

  • Write your own exploits from scratch
  • Discover new vulnerabilities in applications
  • Use Metasploit as an exploit development framework
  • Exploit stack and heap overflows on both Linux and Windows
  • Bypass memory protection measures like DEP, ASLR, and Stack Canaries
  • Write your own shellcode on both Linux and Windows
  • Write stack- and heap-based buffer overflow exploits in both Perl and Python
  • Use debuggers like GDB, Ollydbg, and WinDebug

Note: this course doesn't include an exam, but you'll become Exploit Development Overdrive certified.

Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Firebrand Training has again won the EC-Council Accredited Training Centre of the Year Award, from a Training Partner network that has more than 700 training centres across 107 countries. This extends a record-breaking run of successive awards to nine years.

"The instructor was fantastic for CEH v10, and gave us a solid understanding of the exam - he also did his best for us by showing us industry standard equipment/knowledge that we should be familiar with outside of the exam. The instructor was very professional, responsive to help us, and was very well-versed in his teachings."
