Abstract: Web browsers have an enormous install base and vulnerabilities in them can result in wide-spread infections. In this paper we describe efforts made in 2010-2011 to systematically test for vulnerabilities in web browsers. The work was done with Radamsa, a black-box fuzzer that automatically generates test cases based on samples. Approximately 60 bugs were found in widely used browsers, about half of which had potential security impact.
