About formatStringExploiter

Introduction to formatStringExploiter

formatStringExploiter is a library written in python to help simplify the exploitation of format string vulnerabilities. It does this by abstracting away the notion of how to exploit these vulnerabilities for reading and writing into simple class properties.

As a user of formatStringExploiter, your job is simply to create a python function that will interact with the program and return the results of any string that is given to it. You do not have to understand what offsets or padding is required, you can simply utilize it as if it were a primitive operation.

Supported Architectures

Unlike the first version, this version supports and has been tested against i386 and amd64. In the future it’s possible that it can work against other architectures such as ARM and MIPS, but they are untested as of now.
