Hi All, 

This is something very basic to start with the exploit writing. Can
anyone let me know these queries: 

How do you detect the vulnerability to write a exploit for this? 

Basically i want to know that how do u find in any code of program
that there is buffer overflow or any other kind of vulnerability

How will analyse this to start writing the exploit with respect to
this vulnerability? 

I hope the query is clear.

I suggest you to take a look at Greg Hoglund's book "Exploiting
Software : How to Break Code"
it explains various techniques on how to find vulnerabilities, how to
exploit them, and how to break additional protections a specific
environment might have. It's not the greatest and latest, but it is a
fun and interesting read.

Also, the books that Amazon suggests as related sound interesting for
the subject.
