I am relatively new to the area of cyber security but have a reasonable knowledge of several programming languages, assembly (x86 in particular) and scripting. In light of the recent Shellshock and GHOST vulnerabilities I thought it might be interesting to study older CVEs and security reports and find some old POC code that showed how the vulnerabilities (and attacks) worked, particularly on systems I use less frequently.

I fully understand why more recent vulnerabilities do not necessarily have publicly accessible exploit examples - but are there any archives (Internet or otherwise) of POC (or similar) attacks on old security vulnerabilities?


Typically exploits are released on the Full Disclosure Mailing list, or another email list. Everything's archived online, so a little clever Googling will take you to the original announcements.


Take a look at http://exploit-db.com it has lots of exploit codez
