Go fuzz to catch hard-to-find bugs in Go

Native fuzzing for the Google-created Go language is ready for beta testing, the Go project announced. The goal behind the new automated testing capability is to help Go developers improve code quality and ensure that systems built with Go are secure and resilient. In a bulletin published June 3, Go project developers described fuzzing as a type of automated testing that continuously manipulates inputs to a program to find issues such as panics or bugs that might otherwise go undetected. These semi-random data mutations can discover edge-case bugs that unit tests can miss. Because fuzzing provides more code coverage than traditional testing, it is particularly valuable in finding vulnerabilities and security exploits.To read this article in full, please click here
