comment Should I bother teaching buffer overflows any more?
@mrnap I've been teaching buffer overflows and shellcode writing for 13 years. As most people in the security arena know, this was once the #1 vulnerability (5-10 years ago) and has since been supplanted by other vulnerabilities. I asked the question above to poll professionals on the continued value of teaching these techniques (which takes a lot of time) when other topics are becoming more relevant. You criticize me for even asking the question: believe me, if I'm not constantly questioning the impact of what I'm teaching, then I'm not doing my job.
