SEC760: Advanced Exploit Development for Penetration Testers

Vulnerabilities in modern operating systems such as Microsoft Windows 7/8, Server 2012, and the latest Linux distributions are often very complex and subtle. Yet, they could expose organizations to significant attacks, undermining their defenses when wielded by very skilled attackers. Few security professionals have the skillset to discover let alone even understand at a fundamental level why the vulnerability exists and how to write an exploit to compromise it. Conversely, attackers must maintain this skillset regardless of the increased complexity. SANS SEC760: Advanced Exploit Development for Penetration Testers teaches the skills required to reverse engineer 32-bit and 64-bit applications, perform remote user application and kernel debugging, analyze patches for 1-day exploits, and write complex exploits, such as use-after-free attacks, against modern software and operating systems.

"This is my third SANS class since fall of 2012. The instructors are always excellent." - Todd Grant, Sallie Mae

"Mainly for me, the instructor's relationship with their students is key. If a student sees that their instructor cares about their certification attempt, they pay more attention. Eric has done that for me!" - Joseph Cuddy, US Navy

"SEC760 is a kind of training we couldn't get anywhere else. It's not a theory, we got to implement and to exploit everything we learn." - Jenny Kitaichit, Intel
