Malybuzz - Network Fuzzer



What is this?

Malybuzz is a Python tool focused in discovering programming faults in network software. It's a fuzzer and his function is to create malformed requests of the desired protocol to cause an unexpected situation which the target software can't manage correctly. The fact is that the appropriate security measures aren't adopted developing network-based applications nowadays, and it's an excellent channel to penetrate in a system, or to cause a Denial of Service at least.

The normal execution of the tool is composed by several steps. Firstly the malformed commands are generated depending on the configuration, the target application and the used protocol. After that, the communication channel with the target is established, and the commands begin to be sent. For each sent command a response will be waited and will be checked. If it's not correct, this situation will be reported, and otherwise the sending process will be continued.
