Just Another newbie asking some advice
« on: July 03, 2012, 03:49:27 PM »
hi guys ,

first of all i am a newbie to these hardware,asm and all.
And i am really interested in learning Application exploitation's like buffer overflows,stack overflows etc and how they are working and as a security expert how can i write a patch or fix the problem and all,
but when ever i try to understand it is looking like a night mare to me.
There are parts of c program,asm,and some theoretical explanation about the os,stacks,buffers,variables,process,memory,hardware interrupts and many other things,
i am really confused in understanding these sort of things,

and i am ug graduate i know the basic syntax of c programming language,basics of networking,and i had studied some basics of operating system (theoretically) in my UG.

I need advice from the members here about

what are all the basic things i need to learn to accomplish my goal ?

if possible in which order ?

if possible link me to some resources and materials ?

then you really can't classify yourself as a "security expert", can you   :P
