The Hacker Mind

EP 17: Shellshock

March 23, 2021

Shortly after OpenSSL’s Heartbleed, Shellshock was discovered lurking in Bash code two decades old. How could open source software be vulnerable for so long?

This episode looks at how fuzz testing has evolved over the years, how open source projects have for the most part gone untested over time, and how new efforts to match fuzzing to software development are today helping to discover dangerous new vulnerabilities before they become the next Shellshock.
