Tool review: Fuzzman

Fuzzman is a simple perl script from (the guys that brought you bugle). It is a simple perl script that inspects the man page for a command and enumerates through the combinations of command line options. It then creates a shell script that will run the commands with fuzzing data, such as buffer overflow or format strings. You then run the shell script and look for a crash. It's a simple automated script, with some simple changes you could even make it part of your automated testing suite.

By generating the fuzzing script from man pages it can fuzz any binary that has a man page.

Many binaries are missing or have inconsistent man pages.
