Abstract

Current vulnerability discovery techniques are so effective that they routinely find hundreds of thousands of crashers, which crash the target program. We created a new methodology for precisely and naturally defining vulnerabilities through the creation of patches. We use our methodology to study important questions regarding the practice of fuzzing.
