    Default Creating exploits….

    Ok, so I know the basic concept of creating an exploit. Well a buffer overflow exploit… and I know that metasploit can create shell code for you… but I still have A LOT! to learn, and I wanted to know if anyone could recommend anything? I am already doing a bachelor of computer science. I went out and got myself a book on assembly, I am currently learning high level programming languages, like c++ at uni but I though a low level language would help me better understand the inner workings of a computer… but back to my question, what would you recommend??? I know I may be jumping the gun a bit, but I really would like to be able to create my own exploit. :P

    Syngress "Sockets, Shellcode, Porting and coding" book is quite good for this purpose

    I recommend these three books in this order....

    Fuzzing: Brute Force Vulnerability Discovery

    Hacking: The Art of Exploitation

    The Shellcoder's Handbook: Discovering and Exploiting Security Holes

    There are also a few excellent threads already going listing lots and lots of books are members recommend.
