Over 20 years ago, I worked on the first shipping app with Microsoft crash reporting, for which, I believe, minidumps were invented. I had no idea minidumps were not only still around but had escaped Microsoft and gone cross-platform!
In a spooky coincidence, just yesterday I ran across an old misguided attempt of mine to make an XML format for minidumps. Though it sounds like they can be rendered in JSON now, so…
Makes me really want to take up fuzzing…!
Makes me wonder why it’s not more in the population’s thoughts of top tools, right beside unit tests… Seems priceless to be able to test all possible inputs
There is an interesting startup addressing this. Kinda wish I came up with it first.
