Homemade Fuzzing Platform Recipe

It’s no secret that, since the beginning of the year, I’ve spent a good amount of time learning how to fuzz different Windows software, triaging crashes, filling CVE forms, writing harnesses and custom tools to aid in the process. Today I would like to sneak peek into my high-level process of designing a Homemade Fuzzing Platform, which I’m currently using to fuzz some targets leveraging millions of samples; how I did it, what setup and technologies I’ve used etc… This blog...

Fuzzing: FastStone Image Viewer & CVE-2021-26236

This blog post is a re-post of the original article “Fuzzing: FastStone Image Viewer & CVE-2021-26236” that I have written for Yarix on YLabs. Introduction In my precedent blog post I’ve introduced “fuzzing” from a theoretical point of view. As I’ve previously anticipated, today I’m going to disclose the fuzzing methodology, process and samples that led me to discover five different vulnerabilities in FastStone Image Viewer v.<=7.5. I’ll also go over the root cause analysis of CVE-2021-26236 and how to achieve...

Software Testing Methodologies & Approaches to Fuzzing

This blog post is part of a series and a re-posting of the original article “Fuzzing 101” that I have written for Yarix on YLabs. Introduction In this article, I would like to introduce fuzz testing as part of a vast overview of software testing approaches used to discover bugs and vulnerabilities within applications, protocols, file formats and more. Application Security With an ever-increasing number of vulnerabilities discovered during the years, many organizations still spend little budget and effort to produce and ensure...
