This vendor-independent workshop provides you
The Corelan “ADVANCED” exploit development class is a fast-paced, mind-bending, hands-on course where you will learn advanced exploit development techniques from an experienced exploit developer. During this (typically 3 ‘long’ day) course, students will get the opportunity to learn how to write exploits that bypass modern memory protections for the Win32 platform, using Windows 7 and Windows 10 as the example platform, but using techniques that can be applied to other operating systems an applications. We will discuss differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10 and explore previously undocumented techniques to achieve important exploitation primitives in Windows 10. The trainer will share his “notes from the field” and various tips & tricks to become more effective at writing exploits.
This is most certainly not an entry level course. In fact, this is a one of the finest and most advanced courses you will find on Win32 exploit development.
This hardcore, practical, hands-on course will provide students with solid understanding of x86 Windows heap exploitation. We make sure the course material is kept updated with current evolutions, includes previously undocumented tricks and techniques, and details about research we performed ourselves, so you can apply the research techniques on other applications and operating system versions. Combined with the way the course is built up, this will turn this class into a truly unique learning experience.
During all of our courses, we don’t just focus on techniques and mechanics, but we also want to make sure you understand why a given technique is used, why something works and why something doesn’t work. In the advanced course, we also provide you with insights on how to do your own research related with heap exploitation in general (not just Windows 7 or Windows 10)
The new 2019 edition of the course is based on Windows 7 and Windows 10. (As the Windows 10 Heap Manager contains additional mitigations, we use Windows 7 first to teach the basics, and then use Windows 10 later on)
We believe those are just a few arguments that makes this training stand out between other exploit development training offerings. Feel free to check our testimonials page if you want to see real, voluntary, unmodified and uncensored reactions by some of our students.
Finally, we offer you post-training support as well. If you have taken the course and you still have questions afterwards, we will help.
WARNING: We do not provide solutions for any of the exercises in this course, but we will help you to find the solutions yourself, either during the course of after the course (via the student-only forum)
Why take this course ?
ASLR & DEP Refresher
Windows Heap Management
Modern userland memory protection mechanisms
Finding your own bugs
During the course, students will get the opportunity to work on real vulnerabilities in real applications, use a wide range of heap exploitation techniques and most importantly learn how to do your own research to find exploitation primitives in complex applications and new versions of Windows.
Warning – The course has a steep learning curve and will require full attention and focus.
The “Course Contents” on this page is subject to change without prior notice & can be updated between the moment of registration and the actual course. We will try to cover as much as we can from the “Course Contents”, based on the overall ability to absorb knowledge and time needed to complete the exercises, but Corelan cannot ever guarantee that we will be able to cover everything.
Knowledge & Attitude Prerequisites
It’s imperative for students to comply with these prerequisites.
Unless specified otherwise, students are required to bring the following:
Note : you will receive the exact installation instructions after registration, about a week before class begins, so don’t start installling the VMs yet.
All required tools and applications will be provided during the training or will be downloaded from the internet during the training.
You must have full administrator access to all machines. You must be able to install and remove software, and you must be able to disable and/or remove firewall/antivirus/… when necessary.
It will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement at the start of the course. You will not be admitted to the course without signing this document. You can find a copy of the document here.
About the Trainer
Peter Van Eeckhoutte is the founder of Corelan Team and the author of the well-known tutorials on Win32 Exploit Development Training, available at https://www.corelan.be. The team gathers a group of IT Security enthusiasts and researchers from around the world, who all share common interests: doing research, gather & share knowledge, and perform responsible/coordination disclosure. Above all, the team is well known for their ethics and their dedication to helping other people in the community. Together with the team, he has developed and published numerous tools that will assist pentesters and exploit developers, and published whitepapers/video’s on a wide range of IT Security related topics (pentesting tools, (malware) reverse engineering, etc).
You can find some of the tools on the Corelan github page: https://github.com/corelan
The team also moderates a Slack workplace (with various channels) that provides a platform for people who want to talk about exploit development or discuss wider IT Security topics. Follow us on Twitter (@corelanconsult) and Facebook (corelanconsulting) to get a Slack invite.

Peter has been an active member of the IT Security community since 2000 and has been working on exploit development since 2006. He presented at various international security conferences (Athcon, Hack In Paris, DerbyCon, ISSA Belgium) and taught various Win32 Exploit Development courses at numerous places around the globe. He trained security enthusiasts & professionals from private companies, government agencies and military organizations.
