Fuzzing Rust code with american fuzzy lop (AFL)

What is it?

Fuzz testing is a software testing technique used to find security and stability issues by providing pseudo-random data as input to the software. American fuzzy lop is a popular, effective, and modern fuzz testing tool. This library, afl.rs, allows one to run AFL on code written in the Rust programming language.

What does it look like?

Trophy case

These bugs aren't nearly as serious as the memory-safety issues afl has discovered in C and C++ projects. That's because Rust is memory-safe by default, but also because not many people have tried afl.rs yet! Over time we will update this section with the most interesting bugs, whether they're logic errors or memory-safety problems arising from unsafe code. Pull requests are welcome!
