Created for CrikeyCon 3, 20 February 2016
If you're in a hurry, you're almost certainly looking for the following resources:
dostackbufferoverflowgood.exe- an intentionally vulnerable Windows program
dostackbufferoveflowgood_tutorial.pdf- A PDF tutorial that explains how to exploit the above program
A brief history
The resources in this repo were created for a talk at Crikeycon in 2016. A recording of that talk is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=renR0Aj2YzI.

Did you miss out on stack-smashing for enjoyment and financial gain? Have you always meant to get in to "all that debugger stuff" but don't know your EIP from your ESP? Let's take it back to the 90s for an overview of Win32 stack buffer overflow exploitation.
We'll cover assembly, registers, the stack, function call and return mechanics, triggering stack buffer overflows, taking advantage of saved return pointer overwrites, generating shellcode, and some other weird tricks.
This is not new stuff, and modern mitigations (ASLR, DEP and stack canaries) totally harsh its mellow. If you're a stack savant who has a handle on the heap and ROPs relentlessly then this content isn't for you. For everyone else, may you learn to pop calc not alert(1)
