31. About Zzuf
4
5Zzuf is a transparent application input fuzzer. It works by intercepting
6file operations and changing random bits in the program's input. Zzuf's
7behaviour is deterministic, making it easy to reproduce bugs.

102. Example
11
12Fuzz the input of the "cat" program using default settings:
13
14  # zzuf cat /etc/motd
15
16Fuzz 1% of the input bits of the "cat" program using seed 94324:
17
18  # zzuf -s 94324 -r 0.01 cat /etc/motd
19
20Fuzz the input of the "convert" program, using file foo.jpeg as the original
21input and restricting fuzzing to filenames matching the regular expression
22"foo[.]jpeg" (because convert will also open its own configuration files and
23we do not want zzuf to fuzz them):
24
25  # zzuf -i 'foo[.]jpeg' convert -- foo.jpeg -format tga /dev/null
26
27Fuzz the input of VLC, using file movie.avi as the original input, and
28generate fuzzy-movie.avi which is a file that can be fed to VLC to reproduce
29the behaviour without using zzuf:
30
31  # zzuf -s 87423 -r 0.01 vlc movie.avi
32
33  # zzuf -s 87423 -r 0.01 cp movie.avi fuzzy-movie.avi
34  # vlc fuzzy-movie.avi
35
36Fuzz mplayer's input with seeds 0 to 9999, launching up to 3 simultaneous
37child processes and killing mplayer if it takes more than one minute to read
38the file:
39
40  # zzuf -q -s 0:10000 -F 3 -T 60 -r 0.02 -i movie.avi \
41         mplayer movie.avi -- -benchmark -vo null -fps 1000
