It took some time to achieve the product I was looking for, but we eventually got there. I do feel like a lot of hard work was put into this, and it even exceeded the page requirement. I'm pretty pleased overall. I give my thanks.
Paste the code into MIPS
Next, please comment each line of code in the .text section. Please do this FIRST! It will make tracing through the code much easier.
Once you understand what the code is doing, you’ll notice there is a ‘print_a’ function that is not reachable through the execution path of the code as it’s written. Your job is to devise an input that overflows the call stack and overwrites the $ra register causing the program to execute the ‘print_a’ function. Please provide the successful input that triggers the overflow, a screenshot of the successful execution of your attack that prints the A+ message, and a detailed description of how you figured out how to exploit the buffer overflow and how you devised the proper input.
Code used for the assignment above
str: .asciiz “You’ve earned an A+!”
buffer: .space 28
la $a0, buffer
li $a1, 28
move $a0, $t0
li $v0, 10
addi $sp, $sp, -20
sw $ra, 16($sp)
sw $a0, 12($sp)
addi $t4, $sp, 0
la $t1, ($a0)
lbu $t2, ($t1)
slti $t3, $t2, 1
beq $t2, 48, null
sb $t2, 0($t4)
addi $t4, $t4, 1
addi $t1, $t1, 1
bne $t3, 1, load_str
li $v0, 4
lw $ra 16($sp)
lw $a0 12($sp)
addi $t2, $t2, -48
