Reusing program code in which the shellcode is injected is possible but difficult, and not often seen. This forces you to think about the system calls used and facilitates translating the C program to them. 25 26 Chapter 2 • Understanding Shellcode After an overview of the assembly programming language, this chapter looks at two common problems that shellcode must overcome: the addressing problem and the null byte problem. It concludes with some examples on writing both remote and local shellcode for the 32-bit Intel Architecture (IA32) platform (also referred to as x86).

Com). dll”. The DLL makes it possible to break code into smaller components that are easier to maintain, modify, and reuse by other programs. ■ Encapsulation Encapsulation is a feature of object-oriented programming. Using classes, object-oriented code is very organized and modular. Data structures, data, and methods to perform operations on that data are all encapsulated within the class structure. Encapsulation provides a logical structure to a program and allows for easy methods of inheritance.

Minor changes to the system’s configuration may cause the shellcode (and thus your exploit) to fail. Windows shellcode writers have to use lots of tricks to get function addresses dynamically. Writing Windows shellcode is thus harder to do and often results in a very large piece of shellcode. 31 32 Chapter 2 • Understanding Shellcode The Addressing Problem Normal programs refer to variables and functions using pointers that are often defined by the compiler or retrieved from a function such as malloc, which is used to allocate memory and returns a pointer to this memory.
