Course Description

The Corelan "BOOTCAMP" by Peter Van Eeckhoutte is a truly unique opportunity to learn both basic & advanced techniques from an experienced exploit developer. During this 4-day course, students will be able to learn all ins and outs about writing reliable stack based exploits for the Windows platform. The trainer will share his "notes from the field" and various tips & tricks to become more effective at writing exploits.

We believe it is important to start the course by explaining the basics of stack buffer overflows and exploit writing, but this is most certainly not "your average" entry level course. In fact, this is a true bootcamp and one of the finest and most advanced courses you will find on Win32 stack based exploit development.

This hardcore hands-on course will provide students with solid understanding of current stack based exploitation techniques and memory protection bypass techniques. We make sure the course material is kept updated with current techniques, includes previously undocumented tricks and techniques, and details about research we performed ourselves. Combined with the way the course is built up, this will turn this class into a truly unique experience.

The current edition of the course is 100% based on Windows 11 / Windows 10 and contains an introduction to x64 stack-based exploitation.


  • be able to read simple C++ code and simple scripts
  • be familiar with writing basic scripts using python/ruby/…
