Protostar heap0-4 write-ups

Heap0 In Heap0 we are given the following vulnerable code: #include <stdlib.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <string.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <sys/types.h> struct data { char name[64]; }; struct fp { int (*fp)(); }; void winner() { printf("level passed\n"); } void nowinner() { printf("level has not been passed\n"); } int main(int argc, char **argv) { struct data *d; struct fp *f; d = malloc(sizeof(struct data)); f = malloc(sizeof(struct fp)); f->fp = nowinner; printf("data is at %p, fp is at %p\n", d, f); strcpy(d->name, argv[1]); f->fp(); } From a quick peek to the source code, we can see that our first argument can overflow the d->name buffer (64bytes) and so overwrite the f->fp pointer.
