A presentation introducing format string problems


This presentation tries to cover the basics of format strings exploitation. Starting with an explanation of the legitimate use of Format Strings (Yin) moving onto how programming flaws can be exploited using this technique.


I spent many months getting my head around the nuances of FS exploitation so though I would put together a presentation on all the little things that I though were they key points when coming across this subject for the first time. This hopefully will act as a good basis for the  More Adventures In Format Strings presentation
