This article is going to follow from previous articles as well as going into some of the fundamentals that you will need in order to understand the shellcode and exploit creation process, how to use Python as a launch platform for your shellcode and what the various system components are. In this extension to the series, we have made a slight Segway into using SCAPY for exploit creation and delivery. SCAPY is a series of python based scripts that are designed for network level packet manipulation. With it, we can sniff network traffic, interactively manipulate it, and fuzz services. We are looking at it rather than the various other tools as SCAPY will allow us to draw on the benefits of the Python language and to create a platform to deliver our exploits.
