May-10: Please send an email of thanks and congratulations to Allen Li (class of 15, FYI) for completing the final project! Although there's some difficulty remaining in creating the root shell and getting it to take inputs, he's completed the attack. I hope to post his code so that anyone interested can try it.
Apr-30: Here is the article that describes how to perform a stack buffer overflow attack. Dig in; tomorrow we meet in the basement in order to begin trying to perform this attack.
Apr-21: Project 4 is posted! Have at it!
