View Full Version : C++ Exploit?

I usually see exploit written in Perl and C but not C++, why is this so?

I have also heard that programming in C++ is more productive than programming in C, so why are exploits written more in C than in C++?

Most exploit writers are more interested in a quick and dirty solution. If you take your time to program an elegant, efficient exploit, everyone may have patched their systems by the time you finish. Also, most exploit code is not complex enough to require use of C++ features.
