You need guidance? Look no further than to Mr. Liveoverflow. He puts out nice videos you should look if you haven't already

you can send your payload in p64() because you cant directly type it out
good to understand

You have to fill out the buffer before u reach the secret buff (which is in red) and from the script try decrypt hex value to know what would you put in the secret buff , Good luck (=

IMHO, it should be an information that you have to use Linux and netcat to connect to the server.
I am windows user and i didnt expect that.

Excellent beginner exercise! I had heard of buffer overflow so many times but never really got into understanding what is it all about. Now I had a better understanding. Wasted hours looking at the YouTube videos of Live Overflow and did not know what to do with the nc hint at all! Also wasted time trying to compile the source code! Then, suddenly, I realised I had to use the netcat tool and enter the command as given in the hint in my Kali Linux VM. Then I just play around and observe how different lengths of input string changes the memory. One trick: the way the code reads the bytes is opposite from the way to override the bytes.
It should have set it in memsets?

nice visualization. and I can echo your recommendation of liveoverflow. He created some decent videos on binary exploitation.
Fantastic visualization. Will recommend to my friends.
Mr. Liveoverflow references cannot be open currently, can you guys provide other resources/references to learn binary exploitation ? thanks
