I just finished reading Hacking, The Art of Exploitation 2nd Edition by Jon Erickson. I thought this was a great book that got me started on writing my own exploits. While I am not planning to go into vulnerability research, I do hope to gain an indepth understanding of exploitation. As a side goal, I am also hoping to be able to begin extending the Metasploit framework with the countless exploits and proofs of concept available out there. I am trying to figure out what I want to read next, and I am hoping that you guys can offer some advice and opinions.
While reading the book, I got a refresher in C programming, which I haven't done much since college. I am pretty confident in my C and C++ programming knowledge at this point. However, I am severely lacking in Assembly and understanding of the Intel architecture. Can someone recommend their favorite Assembly book for Intel architecture?
Also, this book concentrated on NIX and its method of memory management. All of the sample exploits pertained to sample Linux programs. Windows is a bit different and has its own libraries. Is there a similar publication that deals more with the Windows architecture, it's memory management and stack defense methods, from a hacker's perspective?
Thank you in advance!
