I seem to recall a couple of programs in the Debian kit that do
something like this by feeding random data to apps, but this one seems
to be a real star. E.g., http://sam.zoy.org/zzuf/lol-firefox.gif crashes
my Firefox (22.214.171.124) very nicely - one-click functionality. :)
I wonder if it'll compile under Solaris? I just might try it out next
week, while I'm in Atlanta. I haven't taught a security class in a
while, but it seems like 'zzuf' would make a _very_ nice teaching aid
for when I'm explaining vulnerability discovery. Given that Sun is
pretty much abandoning CDE, buffer overflows and such are becoming
harder to demonstrate...
