Microsoft Launches Cloud-Based Fuzzing
Microsoft this week at its Ignite 2016 conference in Atlanta released details of a new cloud-based service for rooting out software bugs.
The so-called Project Springfield tool is a fuzzing service that the software giant has been testing with some customers as well as in-house. Fuzzing is a form of testing that sends random inputs to software programs to spot security holes.
testing looks for vulnerabilities that could open the door for bad actors to launch malicious attacks or simply crash the system, causing delays and other problems.
