Hey,
I'm not sure if this should go in this forum or somewhere else, but here goes. I need some help writing a buffer overflow for a setuid binary. It basically allocates 256 bytes for a buffer and calls scanf(%s,buffer). I know that this function is exploitable, but I can't figure out how to send my shellcode+ret into the program.
Someone want to help me out? How do I get the program to read my overflow code?

Thanks

understand assembly and how the code works the cpu. then you shall have your answer...

Modern science has advanced in recent years, and it's now possible to live a reasonably happy life with XP. And there's a survivor's group that you'll want to meet as well."

Ummm...sorry, but that wasn't very helpful; I already know how everything about the overflows works. I already have the program that creates an environment variable containing the string that will spawn my shell. I can use it to spawn a shell from a program that uses strcpy() and receives the string from a parameter. I just don't know how to make a program that uses stdin instead of parameters. I've already tried sending my string into a file and dumping the file in. I've also tried echoing the variable and using | to send it into the program. Could the return address be different because of the scanf()?

Edit: spelling

You can use a debugger to find the return address
