Getting to know GDB…

For a while now, I’ve had some fun with simple buffer overflows under Microsoft’s Windows environment.  Using either Ollydbg or Immunity debugger this was quite easy (well the learning curve wasn’t so bad).  I’ve written a few posts and made a few simple videos showing the process.  Nothing exciting but if it helped someone getting started, well I’m happy.  For a long time I’ve been interested in trying the same thing on the Linux platform.   Same principal really, just the tools charge… and what a change!
