I hope somebody else remembers "Smashing the stack for fun and profit" by Aleph1.
I love the latest commit messages at the emulator repo :)
I share your hatred :)
A very nice guide and introduction both to x86 asm and buffer overflow. Thanks for this.
The cute little emulator, which was linked in the article: https://github.com/bordplate/js86. I am curious how they came up with the ABI for variadics, though…
Someone should contact https://explorabl.es/ because this seems like an explorable exploration!
There is one thing here that I don't really understand:
In the first 2 examples, it says:
"If you pop (fetch) a value from the stack, RSP decreases by 8"
But when I step through it, it seems to add 8 on a pop, not subtract (and vice versa for push), or am I missing something?
