Thats the shell code generated in python, you execute that on the target/vulnerable machine in general. Thats are the opcodes in assembler and python dont know nothing about it in general. What you can do is to convert your shell code in assembler with any disassembler(capstone, distorm, etc...) python lib and then check this link https://stackoverflow.com/...

Changing something small in a payload can have huge effects on the success or failure of an attempt. I assume the small change allowed the payload to be put in an acceptable location to hijack the programs execution while the former only overwrote some of the buffers but caused a crash.

The shellcode you are using: 0xbffffec1: xor %eax,%eax 0xbffffec3: push %eax 0xbffffec4: push $0x68732f2f 0xbffffec9: push $0x6e69622f 0xbffffece: mov %esp,%ebx 0xbffffed0: push %eax 0xbffffed1: push %ebx 0xbffffed2: mov %esp,%ecx 0xbffffed4: mov $0xb,%al 0xbffffed6: int $0x80 is basically ...

This is to add on to chillisauce. I frequently see it being used in payloads. I understand it is done to preserve space, bypass IDS among other reasons. Shellcodes are normally written in hex and then when executed, they get decoded. They're not written like that for any of the reasons you mentioned though. Shellcode is often injected into the ...

Yes, they are the same thing. To be more technical, the hex code at the top is "machine code" and what you see at the bottom is a human-readable representation of the machine code which you know to be called "assembly code". The machine code format isn't there to hide the payload - it is the payload. It is literally the the 1s and 0s that a computer would ...
