FUZZING BRUTE FORCE VULNERABILITY DISCOVERY PDF

In this book, renowned fuzzing experts show you how to use fuzzing to reveal weaknesses in your software before someone else does. Fuzzing is the first and only book to cover fuzzing from start to finish, bringing disciplined best practices to a technique that has traditionally been implemented informally. The authors begin by reviewing how fuzzing works and outlining its crucial advantages over other security testing methods. Next, they introduce state-of-the-art fuzzing techniques for finding vulnerabilities in network protocols, file formats, and web applications; demonstrate the use of automated fuzzing tools; and present several insightful case histories showing fuzzing at work.

Author: Andy Greenberg Andy Greenberg Getty Images Hackers sometimes portray their work as a precise process of learning every detail of a system—even better than its designer—then reaching deep into it to exploit secret flaws. Refine that random poking to a careful craft of trial and error, and it becomes what hackers call "fuzzing"—a powerful tool for both computer exploitation and defense. TL;DR: Fuzzing is the usually automated process of entering random data into a program and analyzing the results to find potentially exploitable bugs.

In the world of cybersecurity, fuzzing is the usually automated process of finding hackable software bugs by randomly feeding different permutations of data into a target program until one of those permutations reveals a vulnerability. That fuzzer would create thousands or even millions of different web pages and load them in its browser target, trying variation after variation of HTML and javascript to see how the browser responds.

After days or even weeks or months of those automated tests, the hacker would have logs of the thousands of times the browser crashed in response to one of the inputs. So a hacker will scour their fuzz inputs that led to crashes to see what sorts of errors they caused. In some small set of cases, those crashes may have happened for an interesting reason—for example, because the input caused the program to run commands that are stored in the wrong place in memory.

And in those cases the hacker might occasionally be able to write their own commands to that memory location, tricking the program into doing their bidding—the holy grail of hacking known as code execution. In , University of Wisconsin at Madison professor Barton Miller was trying to use the desktop VAX computer in his office via a terminal in his home. But he was connecting to that UNIX machine over a phone line using an old-fashioned modem without error correction, and a thunderstorm kept introducing noise into the commands he was typing.

Programs on the VAX kept crashing. With a group of students, Miller created the first purpose-built fuzzing tool to try to exploit that method of haphazardly stumbling into security flaws, and they submitted a paper on it to conferences. Lone hackers can use services like Amazon to spin up armies of hundreds of computers that fuzz-test a program in parallel. And now companies like Google also devote their own significant server resources to throwing random code at programs to find their flaws, most recently using machine learning to refine the process.

Companies like Peach Fuzzer and Codenomicon have even built businesses around the process. All of that, Amini argues, has made fuzzing more relevant than ever.
