Description Jeff Muizelaar [:jrmuizel] 2010-11-24 14:01:42 PST
We're thinking of changing a bunch of the jpeg code, so it would be nice to have a jpeg fuzzer.

Jesse, I was talking to Jeff today about whether he thinks it would make sense for us to get some fuzzers specific to the graphics code.  He said that he thinks that I'm not completely crazy, but he's not sure what such fuzzers would do, and what kind of information he needs to provide for you in order for us to get to an estimate of whether such a fuzzer would be worth having, and finally get one.

This is one of the bugs in this series.  Feel free to ask for any information that you think might be helpful for getting this type of fuzzer.

A fuzzer would be an effective way to wipe out all of the bugs in the new JPEG code. What language would this fuzzer be written in? Would this be a javascript-based that has an iframe pointing to a "data:img/jpeg" URL?

Already done. Fuzzer takes care of the file format.

Sounds good to me.
