Google Introduces Security Testing Environment Dubbed As ‘ClusterFuzz’

Posted on Apr 28 2012 - 4:11am by Karan Chopra

The Chromium Blog reports that the search giant is including a security testing environment dubbed as “ClusterFuzz”. Google is stating that ClusterFuzz runs approximately 6,000 simultaneous Chrome in order to analyze crashes, identify patterns in bugs and exploits, and quickly seek out possible fixes. ClusterFuzz was brought online at the end of last year, and since that time it has identified 95 vulnerabilities and was able to find fixes for 44 of them before they were rolled into a stable release. This rapid security testing benefits not only Google and the Chromium Project, but also open source projects.
