Windows exploitation
Windows exploitation by @Fu11Shade

Just thought I'd share this golden gem here:

Fu11Shade Wrote:This page provides a pathway for learning Windows exploit development, following the provided blog posts will allow you to learn Windows exploit development from the basics, to advanced kernel exploitation on a Windows 10 system with all the mitigations enabled.

Basic exploitation (late 1990’s - early 2010’s era) is my repository with over 25 from scratch written exploits, these exploits are in-scope of the “basic exploitation” category of this series.

Fair warning, some of the following posts are not finished yet… Most everything else is

Hunting Windows 0days

Once you have enough Windows exploitation knowledge, you can start auditing third-party applications and drivers for 0day vulnerabilities, below are a few that have been discovered with this level of information.

Discovered 0days by me can be found littered around my Github profile, more organization will come soon

Advanced Windows exploit development resources

github Wrote:Some resources, links, books, and papers related to mostly Windows Internals and anything Windows kernel related. Mostly talks and videos
