I am Dhaval Kapil, also known as 'vampire'. I am a software security enthusiast, always reading up or trying to find vulnerabilities in everyday software. I'll be graduating from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee(IIT Roorkee) in Computer Science this year. I was part of SDSLabs, where I developed Backdoor. I'll be joining Georgia Tech as a Master's student this fall. Software development is my hobby and I've also completed the Google Summer of Code program twice. Find me on Github and Twitter.

This book started out as an article for my blog. Eventually, a lot of matter filled in and it transformed into a short book. These are a collection of my notes, gathered by looking up various online resources regarding heap and heap exploitation.
