Fuzzing is a software testing technique used to discover coding errors and security loopholes in software, operating systems or networks by inputting massive amounts of random data, called fuzz, to the system in an attempt to make it crash. A fuzzer is written to do the fuzzing.
Charlie: The other thing you could imagine is attacking the kernel from the battery. So you could write a fuzzer in CoolRISC assembly, and have the battery literally fuzzing the OS.
