Fuzzing at Mozilla brown bag on January 30, 1pm PT

Fuzzing [1], a form of randomized testing, it is an integral portion of the testing process at Mozilla. Crashes, hangs, assertions and various security problems, such as memory safety problems, are discovered through fuzzing [2].

Thousands of bugs in Mozilla applications have been found using fuzzers. In particular, 3 of the fuzzers have been responsible for more than a third of critical security bugs.

Drop by on Monday, January 30, at 1pm Pacific Time in 10 Forward, where we will host a brown bag session sharing a high-level overview on how fuzzing is used to discover these issues and how you can help us find more bugs.

The brown bag should be available on the public Air Mozilla ( https://air.mozilla.org/ ) and archived here.

See you there!
