The SANS course SEC760:Advance Exploit Development for Penetration Testershas gone through a major update and Stephen is currently recording the class at home, along with Jaime Geiger (Author of day 4 of the course on Windows 10 Kernel exploitation).

In this section we will introduce version 7.4 of IDA Pro and how it is used in the course, as well as for reverse engineering in general. IDA Pro comes bundled with SEC760 and is used throughout the course on topics such as advanced Linux exploitation, binary diffing, Windows Kernel exploitation, and Windows heap exploitation. We hope to see you online!
