This post is pretty old! Opinions and technical information in it are almost certainly oudated. Commands and configurations will probably not work. Consider the age of the content before putting any of it into practice.

Bryce, those are good questions.

[Prof] Writing a module for a known but not modularized exploit meets the requirement. Coming up with a novel exploit and modularizing it is even better. And can it be for a (common) webapp, or should it be for something lower level (and with, on average, a better security record)? [Prof] An exploit for a common web app meets the requirement in my mind. Again, coming up with something novel and on the cutting edge would be more impressive. You can only get 100 points for the assignment, though! ;-) [Prof] Thanks, Bryce
